Question Spring ? 150 vs. 130

I was talking with Kevin earlier this week and one of the suggestions he made was possibly looking at changing my 14" 150lb. springs to a 14" 130lb. spring for more transfer. Well I got to looking at the current 150lb springs and at ride height (25 1/2) the spring is compressed to 8" with the bottom coils almost touching. The top coils have about a 3/8 gap between them. Does this sound right? Could I still run a 130lb spring? (Car weighs 2,800lbs 88 coupe) Also I will be flipping the caster camber plates to gain more strut travel. Anybody have any thoughts or advise? Thanks

I run a 110 on my iron headed 306 Hatchback, if Kevin suggests you go with the 130 then go with the 130.


New times coming soon.....
