    I have A 72 Skylark that has saggy rear springs.I would like to have A rake to my car and I'm going to be installing 15x8in rims and beefy tires and new shocks on the back.Right now the car does not wheel hope any and I'm afraid of stuffing it up and making it wheel hope,would rather not buy traction bars.
    I have been considering the Moog cc501 springs and was wondering if this would be A good choice.

    I have used the 501’s and a few others. I will try and get the other numbers.

    Hard to say if you will get any rake without more info. 14's in the front and 15's in the rear is a trick some guys do to get the front lower. Most Skylarks/GS look low in the rear, so rake is definitely a plus. The 501's will give a great ride, but I do not think they will raise your car much over stock height. See what Brian recommends.

    I got the original 14 on it,I will leave the 14,s on the front and put the 15,s on the back,that will probably give some rake.

    I haven't bought any springs yet but would like to with in A couple of weeks.
    Could some one please give me A part number to A set of rear springs that will make my 72 Skylark set higher than stock.
