In the photo your car appears sortof level. Today
I am replacing my moog cargo coils that have sagged to level status.
You are welcome to the old ones for the cost of shipping about $10.
Do you have Advance Auto Parts near you? In their computers are many selections for rear springs and one of the windows shows the specs with carring capacity, wire diameter, inner diameter, relaxed length, etc. Maybe other parts stores have this info in the computer.
Replacing the springs is very simple, remove the wheel remove the lower shock mount bolt/nut, let the axle sag, spring plops out. New spring requires additional sag from a helper stepping on the axle and in it goes, jack the axle back up and hook up shock. Same procedure on the other side.

In my picture Im pulled up the drive way a bit so it looks level but if i pull back down a little bit to the level part you will see how high up the back is.
I am interested in those springs if they are in decent condition and lower my car atleast 2 inches. How many miles are on them?

ISSM96,
There is 70,000 miles on them since a year ago when they were installed. They are the Moog cargo coils but they didn't hold up as well as a house brand from RS Strauss stores that I used on my first 9C1.
If they don't do it for you send them on to ydobuyna.
I deliver lost luggage at night for a courier service but the loads rarely top 800 lbs. I need to replace because the trailer hitch drags entering some driveways.
Tomorrow I start vacation for a week so the earliest I would ship would be Sept 2. I get a deep discount on Fed EX so the cost will be minimal.
Send me your address, my E mail, [email protected]
Robert

ydobyna;
The springs are yours, Send me your address.
ISSM96 is not interested. On my 94 9C1 these springs are level with trunk empty. The diameter of the wire is .625
