    I have a 73 bbc full weight car looking at either installing my moroso front drag springs or buying these coilovers. Anybody have experience with these coilovers.
    only reason I'm looking at the coil overs is the installation cost or buying the tool bring me close to the coil over price. Car is a street strip car more street than strip.

    You might be able to answer your own question. Why do you want to use a coil over?

    I don’t see anything wrong with them

    would assume you already have aftermarket lca's ? Also misleading description as adjusting the spring collar is NOT going to change the spring RATE (ie no attached top plate), although 550 should be good.

    Unless you're going hard core road, autocross, slalom, etc, or have money to burn, stick with the standard spring setup. If you don't already have them, tubular uppers are a wise choice.

    I would shop somewhere with better customer service.

    And the first question to be asked will be why/what are you trying to accomplish.

    A lot of CPP items are rebadged from various manufacturers. Compare their part numbers with other brands and you can figure out fairly quickly who makes the products you want. I got my front and rear sway bars from CPP and received Addco bars...which I was totally OK with.

    def nothing wrong with CPP parts. I actually thought the quality vs price is pretty good. I would run their stuff before some other people’s stuff.

    They are Viking shocks and that's a great price.

    I bought the same set up from cpp only for a 63 impala. And yes they are viking shocks and I don't see any issues with the quality
