thats not really fair, most any thing you'll ever read, only says match the springs to the cam..
tons of guys will buy a cam/lift/springs out of summit, not knowing anybetter,, because nothing they've ever read, said anything about the spring seat.. most times it's coil bind/seal clearance/etc
not spring dia. to spring seat..
only one in the car mag world I ever see say anythign about it was jeff smith..
and face it 75% of the guys in the hobby, car mags are what they read for "tech"
then they do a cam swap.. and because the guy on the tech line at jegs/summit sent him "matching springs" he thinks it's all good..
not knowing anybetter..
