As suggested, get your car weighed and get springs correct for the weight.

I probably need stock springs so there is sufficient suspension travel

Mine look like 9", I'm sure I need this upgrade

I can probably do that at the county dump, where they weigh your vehicle before and after. Not sure if that alone will tell me the correct weight. From what I've read, the engine sets back much farther in a street rod than in a Mustang II, resulting in less weight on the suspension than you might think.
