I have a 62 F85 Cutlass Convertible. It sat for 40 years on the susp in storage and I will be replacing springs and shocks. I have never had the car on the road and don’t really know where it rides on standard springs . The only spring offered by anyone is the standard springs with no HD option other than the rear station wagon springs which are 237Rate vs the other models at 160Rate. Fronts are the same for all models. No Moog available but Eaton Detroit Spring has a them at $250 and Fusick at $160. Eaton can also supply a 1″ lowered spring which will have a stiffer rating/lower deflection/lower center of gravity for vehicle/less lean/better handling. Putting 205×60 or 65 x 15s on it.
Question is, any preference for Eaton vs. Fusick for the money? And anyone know if the car can handle a 1″ drop and still align.
The tire size appears to clear but may be an issue with lowered springs and I’ll be looking at that also.
Any thoughts on these issues are appreciated.
