  • Chvey V8 in a 1962 Stude, which coil springs?

    After read Dick S's. post about he swapping in a SBC/TH 350 into his Lark..........what front spring should I use or would 'OEM' style coils for a 1965-66 car work?

    A Stude V8 weighs almost 300# more than a Chevy V8. If you do the math, I'd think your presumption regarding the 65 springs would be correct.

      Wouldnt 6cyl springs be about perfect for a SB Chev replant?
