    Gulstrand Engineering springs for Gen 2 F body. Front coils 13" free height, 8 coils, .745" wire diameter, checked 720 lb/in on one test press, 740 lb/in on another tester. Rear leafs are GS12-001A, 270 lb/in. Low arch and 2nd leaf wraps front spring eye. 4 Bronze eye bushings are needed, common oilite bushings .75" o.d. by .50" i.d. by 2.25" long or 2 shorter sections will work. Includes front spring perches modified for anti-squat, cross bolt raised 1". Suggest nylon washers on each side of front spring eye to reduce noise on the street, old ones were worn out. These were designed to be used with a .75" to 1.0" front swaybar and no rear bar. I will include a 1" front bar but it will require sandblasting and new bushings/end links. These will be super firm on a street car, used on a track trials/hillclimb car with great success. Local pickup in the Charlotte, NC area will save a lot of freight on these heavy pieces. $150 for all plus the ride. I can also include a set of 4 solid steel eccentric front upper control arm bushings with grease fittings.

    I have 700# springs w/ 1.25" front bar on mine, they aren't all that bad on the street.

    I picked up a pair of big block springs, supposed to be Guldstrand, what kind of drop do they have? I have 2 inch drop leafs for the rear
