What is the best spring size to use in a 82 Regal? We cannot use spacers. I tried a Tru coil 5 1/2 x 12 in the front and its nearly impossible to get in. Which size should I use in the back?

Thanks

they will fit believe it or not leave a 12 on the rf and then a 11 on the left then either 11 or 12's on the rear that one inch in front makes up for no spacer

I had an 11" spring on the rf then put the 12" in and the tire is very hard to turn. Must have bent something?


thanks

did you tighten up the wheel bearing to much a spring shouldn't have anything to do with the wheel turning

Both, I think I must have wrecked a ball joint. Did yours fit without any modifications to the spring pocket?

thanks

went right in just had to use the jack to get the spindle bolted up is there any chance you have them in upside down or maybe don't have the coil in the pocket that it's suposed to ride in?
