    FWIW, I used the 5401's with Viking Coilovers fronts on my Pro touring GS as they sit 1" lower than stock. They are replacements for 68 and 69 GTO's and have a 129# rate.

    RA showed the moog 5385 as stock. I gave them a try. I would agree pretty stock. Typical skylark stink bug look. The frame and body are basically level but because of the quarter design it looks way low. I will be changing them out we’ll see if this works.

    Is the front on the ground? If so what front springs?

    It is down but not sure what springs are in front. it actually measured less than a stock one I compared it to. Measures 9.5” from bottom of frame at weld front and rear.

    Hey, I wanted to add to this old thread, I ran across it when picking my springs and I feel it helped. I went with the 5379’s along with the KYB gas adjust shocks... with the coil spring insulators doing the whole rear was about $115 and an hour of time... not bad at all for the improved stance and ride.

    I still had stock shocks and coils so you can imagine how rough and saggy it all was.

    Here are some pics... I gained about two inches in the rear... I’ll repost next year to see how they have settled after some time.

    Tires are 235/60R15
