The part number in the middle, so that is how coil spring black magic works.

When I do get the info poncho62 I will let you know if that would have been the right choice.

Anyone else with a little more in depth info. to confirm poncho62's recommendation?????

Don't know, Bud....best to ask the spring rates at the parts counter.

Someone on the web might have them, but I don't know where.

Go to google.com search engine. Type in Moog spring rates. A number of options will come up. Maybe one of those will give you the information you need.

you mean to tell me that you can find the part numbers but can't find the spring rates?

find another parts counter......


actually, i think i have a cataloge for moog, let me look later this morning and i'll post what i find, just went thru this about 6 mo ago on a MII...



BTW, what does "beefed up" mean anyway?
i'm guessing the 4wd look

gasser style chevelle, now I like that idea....... now for the straight axle questions...

I have found the information that I needed, the good people at Henderson Wheel and Warehouse supply had a real MOOG spring catalog and copied all the Chevelle/El Camino pages for me.
I went to several parts stores that said they had a MOOG catalog but what they had was a catalog of MOOG part sold under there brand name (i.e. CarQuest) that only had parts numbers.
I had performed a weeks worth of Google searches with every combination I could think of, all I could find was some Camero information.
It is getting VERY difficult to find information like this, now days.

I have started another tread moving on to more question, now that I have the info. That I need: http://www.hotrodders.com/t38294.html

Hey tomslik I hope you read this before spend your time looking for your MOOG catalog, but I do appreciate that you where willing to help me out.
What I meant by beefed up is wide tires, front and rear, much wider on the rear, the rear end setting up enough so that the tires are not in the fender wells, the way hodrodders made there cars look in the late 60’s and 70’s.

I like the way this one looks, the are tires NOT up in the fender wells, the only changes I would make are bit higher in the rear and wider tires on the rear. FYI this is not my car, I just wish it was.



Hope everyone is having a great weekend, I am spending mine removing A-arm bushing..fun,fun.
