    I need to see more pictures of the owners that have Moog 5610 springs in front! My tires rub after I installed my new tires and wheels combo. Apparently, my original stock front springs have collapsed over time.

    This is 5610 at stock height, sits a bit too high for my liking. Front tires are 245/45x17.

    This is with about 1 2/3rd inches cut from coil, stance is good but it's almost too low for going over speed bumps, etc. No rubbing so far.

    I'm starting to wonder if I should consider the Moog 5608 instead of the 5609's after seeing yours.

    If you search through my build thread you can see my Moog 5664's before and after I cut them. they are pretty stiff, but that helps prevent it from bottoming out that is for sure.

    Corky, what leaf springs are you using in those pics?

    I have a set of 5610's ready to go in. They are replacing a set of global west springs with a coil cut off. I got tired of the car being "slammed".

    I'd like to buy a set of Moog to match what your springs look like AFTER you cut them. So then I don't have to do this twice or do any cutting. At least that's my goal...

    There is a chart somewhere that compares all the moog springs, I just can find it. Try searching member Todd80Z28. It was on his website.

    Unfortunately, the link to that doesn't work anymore.
