Anybody try these (45H3012)? The Moog springs (CC623) have more than doubled in price from the posts I've seen recommending them, and the AC Delco shocks are about half the price. Just trying to save a few bucks, as my SS doesn't go that far...

Thanks!

There may be some issues. What are the specs on the springs, and how do they compare with the Moog springs. Some people have used springs from other cars, and consider them satisfactory. Some people have used rear springs from a Crown Vic on wagons as well. Most lowering springs have a higher spring rate to keep the car from bottoming out.

Fred, not looking for lowering springs, just want to replace some really tired springs since I dumped the non-working air shocks.

As far as the specs, very similar to the Moog, the Delco springs are .27 taller, and 40 lbs more in load rating.

I would go with the Delco springs to allow for heavier loads.

The delco springs are taller than the MOOG 623? The MOOG springs lift the back of a wagon quite a bit themselves so make sure you want to go that high.
