Jim,

 What kind of vehicle are you talking about the springs for? and you need to measure your vehicle weight to get the right spring, trust me, this is really important to get the correct spring.  I know when I put a set in my Elky with an all iron big block, it sat up too high for my likin, and after letting it settle with some tool boxes on the front rad. support, it still jumped up too high, so, I cut exactly 1/2 of a coil out and it was perfect for my application, and I should have left them in as they have a lot of stored energy in them and work well, just need to get your ride heigth correct for your likin ;-)  and a hugh tip, only cut a little bit at a time, can't weld it back on once too much is cut off :-({|=

I put another new set in about 2 months ago and again, if jacked the front end up like an early gasser =;  but again, I will cut another 1/2 coil out of both of them and let er rip.  Hope this helps, and get a GOOD spring compressor as these springs are very tall and need a lot of compressing to install, especially if your  lower A-arm hits your headers [-(

John

John,
Thanks for the advice. The car is a 1971 "A" body with an iron block 383,
aluminum heads and manifold and fiberglass fenders and hood. If the scales I used are right the front end weighs 1970 pounds (with me on board) and a total weight of 3500 pounds. It hooked fine when it was a 350 but it blew last season and i replaced it with a more radical 383. Hopefully they will help.
Thanks again for the advice.
Jim
