Default Front trick springs for 69 chevelle

Trying to get info for a buddy.
69 chevelle, iron head BBC, runs 10.70's...just a simple bracket car.

We looked at the trick springs, there are 3 or 4 listed.
Any advice for front drag springs?

Thanks!

Call Ron at Santhuff, best spring for you app. Try to have your front end weight as well so he can direct you in the right direction.

I just took my front trick springs out on the advice of Todd at TRZ, and right off the trailer, it went .04 quicker in the 60ft.

Santuff makes good springs, Moog also. You just have to do some research on the spring rates of the different springs to find what you need. With how individual cars vary so much with the weight percentages, it is so much easier to put a coil over on the car and have some ride height adjustibility instead of having to remove the front springs and trim them to get the ride height that you want.

Forget the trick springs. They're only trick till they collapse after a week. Call Alex Denysenko at moneymakerracing.com. He got me the right spring for my bbc cutlass

If you decide to go with Santhuff front springs, you will most likely want the 200lb. spring rate. I run the 200lb. rate springs in my Buick with an iron headed 454 3646lbs. race weight running 10.80's.

I tried Moroso front springs and they sagged more and more over time. I am now usiing Moog, or McQuay Norris stock replacement 6 cylinder coils and none of them sagged significantly over time.
