I am trying to put together a list of things I need to get for my '59 four door and was wondering what kind of coils to run on it. I only want to hop it like a foot or so. Should I run 3 or 3 1/4 or 4 for the front?

i would run a 4.5 ton coil up front. with 1 turn cut off.... let the coils break in and the front of the car will eventually lay right around stock height...if thats the look you like. if u want the car to lay lower then id take 1 1/4 turns off and let the coils break in. and if ur still not at the height u like.. take 1/4 turn off at time until youre where u want.

and depending on how often ur gonna drive the car and play around with the switches. give the coils about 2-4 weeks to break in. if ur driving the car a lot. if its ur weekend warrior give it a lil more time
