Rear Springs

I want to replace the rear springs on my '68 Biscayne big block, 4 speed car.  I am looking at the Moog constant rate 6187, and their Cargo Control (variable rate) CC609.

I want to end up with close to stock ride height.  Does anyone have experience with either of these two spring models?  Or other suggestions?

Thanks

Pat

I can't speak for a Big Car....but all Intermediate GM A-bodies....there is a significant difference between stock ride height and Moog's stock ride height.

AT FIRST.....THEY SIT A BIT TALLER.....BUT DO SETTLE DOWN AFTER A WHILE.

Thanks Dan, What about the constant rate vs the variable rate?

Are you looking for better handling.....or better stock ride.

BETTER HANDLING OR A PERFORMANCE Spring is a Constant Rate Spring.

IF YOU'RE WANTING STRAIGHT LINE DRAG PERFORMANCE....GO VARIABLE WITH AN AIR BAG.
