MOOG Referral for Coil Springs

Folks,
I sent MOOG an email asking them if they had anything in their catalog that I wasn't finding online regarding coil springs.

I received the following and thought it may help some folks out who may be looking for springs.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
I am sorry we did not have what you were looking for, it appears of the brands we carry that part is not one that is offered yet. However, I will pass this information along and now that we have your contact information we will notify you in the event this part does become available, however I can provide you with the number to a number to a company that we refer a lot of our customers to when we don't have the coil springs for their vehicles: Coil Spring Specialties: 785-437-2025. Hopefully they can assist you.


Thank you for your suggestion and please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.

Have a wonderful day,
Tammy

Coil Spring Specialties...

...has been around a long time, produce excellent products at a reasonable price. They encourage anyone enthusiastic about the performance of their car to always replaced springs in full sets, or at the very least to replace in pairs, both front or both back. Not because they want to increase their sales, but for factual performance reasons. Like worn spring on one end with new springs on the other are no longer bounce frequency balanced. Car will be clumsier than it could be with 4 new springs. They will also confirm that a lot of the information about springs on this site is wrong. (info: some ignorant,as in just not factual; some stupid,as in dumb and proud of it) They will confirm that any cut front spring, by any means, ruins the balance of the bounce frequency between F+R and given the weight distribution of a B-body, it's impossible to find a balanced R spring that is not too stiff. Bone headed idea's like taking 750 Lbs. front springs and chopping off a coil or more requires so hard a rear spring for equal BF that on a road not billiard table smooth rear traction is hopelessly compromised as is rear roll resistance. It may corner flat but it's ultimate grip is reduced and all performance is degraded. You can not jam in spacers, bolt in goofy lifts or even worse "slam it by duh! let's heat up the coils" without ruining the physical relationship between F+R. Want a visual. Take out all 4 shocks and bounce the car. With any matched set of oem or aftermarket springs the car will stay level as it bounces. That's because all of the OEM+aftermarket providers match the BF of their spring sets. With any mismatched springs, cut springs, jam in spacers, bolt in goofy lifts or let's heat up the coils or other perversions, the car will not stay level as it bounces. Back on the road, shocks installed, they are worse. Even if the owner delusionally claims "It handles like a dream" or "it rides so nice"...The handling, ride and braking is only at it's best with the BF matched OEM or Aftermarket sets. Fact not opinion.
