Is the weight a misprint, did you mean 3264#?

I was speaking to Andy from Smith Race Craft and he told me about some Moog springs that he uses in his car and im trying on my 69 camaro. He gave me a part # 8304 and if i wanted to go lower to use #8354. i havnt tried them out yet. Anyone else run these ?

here is a vid of his Bad ass camaro http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nDoJIZG--Bc.

hope this helps.

you really need to scale the car, and get the proper weights for the front end. it will save you ALOT of time and headache trying to find the right spring. then call someone with the weights and they will be able to set you up with the correct set of springs.

yeah thanks guys for the info. And ya andy has one bad ride i am from kennedale tx i see that car a lot. My car will be in the same class if i ever get it done but it is sitting on jack stands waiting on new rearend and a number of small things but not cheap things but i am about to buy springs for the front every thing else is new and they our the orginal springs and some one cut them and put a spacer in one side when they cut to much . So needless to say they must go and i need to replace all the bushing in the front end all so thanks again for all the info

I have Santhuff springs. You would need to know the front end weight and your installed height. No cutting will be needed and they won't settle. They cost twice the amount of the Moroso's, but you will only buy 1 set.

Not true! lol. I had the car scaled and Im on my second set and its still not right! Nothing pisses you off more than changing front springs 3 times.
