Suggestions to look into:

Stock spring rate? => new stock springs

Stiffer springs? = Global West (front only)

I can't think of other stock height springs?

MOOG offers some high quality replacement springs that are stock height, unless you have an SS, MOOG doesn't offer a replacement spring. I believe that Hotchkis also offers stock ride height springs, but I can't vouch for the longevity of these springs as I have not used them. I can't tell if you have an SS, 9C1 or Caprice this would help with more suggestions.

OOps. Just saw your sig...sorry. For the SS I would check out Scott Muellers write up on the ultimate spring setup. You can find at the following address:

Good luck....

That's an interesting article. I have a high mileage car and when it comes time I always upgrade when replacing parts. Thank you. I have almost all the hotchkis stuff and will be looking into their spring.
