V-8 vega :front coil spring question

hello all,
i am building a v 8 vega wagon . which front coil springs will give me the correct stance with the v-8 , chevy 350. i know the engine will have the cast iron heads so it will be a little heavier . thanks for any input.

i had a 72 wagon years ago. I set it up with 4cyl a/c car springs. They were about right for iron heads and a aluminum intake. Mine was 350 hp 350 with a t350 trans.

What year is the Vega? If it's older than a 1975, you will NEED to replace the lower control arms with 75 and later Monza or Vega units. These are deeper and use the longer springs. After that is done, use a set of V6 Monza springs. There are 3 types, but the 2 most popular are Moog #5622 (V6-No AC) and #5624 (V6-AC). Also be aware that not all L.C.A.'s have sway bar mounts.
