Best thing I ever did with my 67 stock susp camaro was to weigh the car, take the front end numbers and look at the Moroso website. Get the springs for your car and weight. It was a 540, dart 360's, glasshood, 30x10.5 goodyear and worked like a champ (on the street or track). Granted this was 10 +- years ago but it would hook. Good idea to repalce them every year or two, good news is they are only 100. Ofcourse you cant cut them until the settle or they will be too short. Thats the only spring out there I have ever found that is designed for stored energy (to that extreme) anyway. Good luck!

Do you want it to work like this?



If so, www.santhuffshocks.com for your springs. The 200 pounders would be just about right for your car. (I run the 180's but it sits LOW and you might not want it that low)

I have a Calvert spec'd suspension with Morosos up front. The only thing I can say is, they can sometimes require you to go through trial and error to get the car to sit how you want. I swear they ship 4 springs under 12 different part numbers (joke). I had to cut 1-1/4 coils out of mine to get the stance right. But weight transfer is great and I have 5-1/2" of travel. Mine is a n/a 23* sbc but the principle is the same. As stated above, weigh your car on a good 4 scale system to get it as close to correct as possible. And the Santhuffs are really nice too. He knows his stuff.
