front springs

anybody got any input on what springs i should use for must.II suspension under my 36 chev pick up ? im running a 250 six with a turbo 350. i had pinto v-6 springs with a half coil cut when the 350 was in it .it rode okay but a little stiff.the six is in the stock location.its a fat man crossmember with heidts tubular arms.also if anyones interested, i welded a second 2 inch box crossmember behind the fat man cross to help take the thrust load of the lower arms.it looks to be a better idea than those goofy little gussets. thanks for your input.

You need Mustang II 4 cyl (without air conditioning) springs for that application. Something with around a 310-320 spring rate. Go to Eaton Springs and check their recommendations.
