Re: coil spring too high
I've seen the part #'s and ratings for the original front springs used in the '66 and '67 fairlane. It worked out to 6 or 7 different springs based upon engine, tranny, A/C, body style, etc. Ford obviously felt it was important to get the right height and ride. I've talked to Eaton and that's where I'm going when it's time to buy. They're not the cheapest but although I haven't proven it yet, they certainly seem to know what they're talking about.
