finding the right coil springs
I installed a trans am sub frame onto a 49 willys pick-up.Worked out great,but here is the problem.I installed the front coils out of a V-6 Camaro.But there to stiff. What I need is softer springs, but how does one figure outhow soft of springs to go with Thanks 10-20-2002 11:03 AM

you need to know how much weight is on each wheel then you can do the math or easier call a spring co or coil over shock co. Carrara - aldan- monroe etc. tell them what you have and they can recommend a spring.

If you want to keep the trans am suspension fairly stock try giving Eaton Detroit Spring a call and give them all the info you have. They can wind up some coils that'll give you the ride you want for about the price of one coilover shock. :cool:

NAPA has a catalog that gives specs on auto coil springs. Look for ones that have the same od & ride ht as yours. Chose by finding ones from the above catagory that are from a similiar wt car.....Don
