Spring setup help Moog 5552 OEM 482086

1995 RMS with 17" SS wheels, not sure which size tire I will use, probably stock.
Front springs Moog 5552 w/ Koni 8040 1087
Rear GM 482086 ( 1991 9C1) w/ Bilstein 24-009294
Will this work? Is there a better front option?
Goals: need ground clearance for rough roads, want a sporty ride not the mushy gushy FE1.
I will be upgrading brakes and bars too.
Any suggestions or help with recommendations is much appreciated.
I prefer new springs without any cutting.

Thanks, Walt

I went with factory rate Bilstein and these springs:


Moog 7268 Front Ford 150 97-03 Dodge Van 79-80 750Lbs
Moog 5419 Rear Caprice 79-96 (9C1?) 173Lbs


Front springs Moog 5552 are 543Lbs
You post the moog equivalent for the rears

I do not think you would notice much difference with your choice. The 750Lbs firm up the handling and are a little higher than factory.(0.16")


I would stick to one shock manufacturer or get adjustable ones. I would be afraid different design targets of different shock companies could do weird things.


The forum search may help you or try searching from outside and include Impala forum. I went through old posts one at a time before I bought my springs.


This is one of those posts:

Suggestions:
Front -> Moog 7268
Rear -> Speedway Motors TrueCoil 200lb : https://www.speedwaymotors.com/Tru-C...sku=252514-200

Shocks -> QA1 Stocker Star Shock Adjustable.

Gives stiffer ride than stock, but handles well for Autocross and Road Racing.

This link from last year describes the part numbers + results for my Fleetwood: Regular Bilsteins, cargo coils, Airlift bags for load/tow. No change to rear bar, still need to change front bar from FE1 to the Impala size.
