what would you guys recommed in the way of coils for a 1980 buick Regal,

the car wont be a hopper just a cruiser with some playing, should i get 2 full stacks and cut them for front and back ? run on the stock coils that have been shortened (they're still good, although the the juice will kill them off eventually or get custom wound coils that are say 50% stiffer for ride quality ?

what do you recon, also what weights do you recommend ?

thanks

get a fullstack of 2tons and cut them in half, that way you'll get 4 springs with like 4 wraps each. and still the ride will be smooth, no use to go bigger like 3tons cuz it will ride too stiff, so if you're not hoppin' it go with 2tons.

i always liked to use the purple ones from cce in street rides. they seem to ride ok and hop a little.
