First-Gen F-body Guldstrand modification

Do stock springs provide the best combination of ride/handling at stock hight when used with the Guldstrand Modification on first-gen F-bodies? I'm about to order new springs but I'm not sure if stock is the way to go.

The car is a '67 Firebird 400 Conv't...daily driver but I'm all about getting it to handle better.

Go to www.camaros.net/forums and search the forum. Also, go to www.pozziracing.com and check out the first-gen-F-body suspension section. Don't forget that the Pontiac motor is heavier than a Chevy, so you'll need to adjust.

If you're going to go to the trouble to move the pivot points of the suspension, you'll want to put some serious springs in there.

I know they say that ride quality is sacrificed with stiffer suspension but how dramatic is the difference? I know the answer could be kind of vague but I've never had the pleasure of driving an older car like my Firebird with stiffer springs...
