I'm not Scott but I just re-read Page 2 of this thread and found I ordered new springs from coil spring specialties"

Probably these guys: http://www.coilsprings.com/classic.aspx

NOW I want to learn more about the exact specs that Scott gave them to work with. Sounds like the change was very successful.

Yes! You are correct! Coil spring specialties. In my manual, there is direction on measuring ride height. Basically measure the inside pivot point of the lower control arm and compare to the outside pivot point. The manual says my inside pivot point should have been between 0" to 1" lower. So using 1/2" as a base point, it appeared my car was sitting 1-1/4" low and I liked the height so that's what I ordered. Coil spring specialties has the stock spring specs but also gathered information such as "does it have ac" to compensate for the extra weight. I informed them I was using vintage air and a aluminum radiator. Ordering heavy duty springs helped with handling especially since I got them a little lower than stock.
