Moog 658a front; 6033 rear.

The 6041 (station wagon spring) in the rear will raise the rear up about 2-3 inches.

From Pete's other post.

It depends on the spring rate and load.

moog 6000 has free height of 18.58" with 305 lbs per inch rate and a 2063 lbs load rating.

moog 6004 is 18.78"; 325 lbs per inch; 2264 lbs.

moog 658a is 16.89"; 404 lbs per inch; 2052 lbs.

All three have installed height of 11.81"

There may be more alternatives.


I used moog as an example.

6004’s are good moogs for a stock height, I’m currently installing a set on my 63. I had a set on my 62 and liked them.
