After weighing my front at 1640# on a truck scale, I bought the 47130 springs and installed them as-is (not cut). They are super soft and it doesn't take much to raise the front. Takes a bit of getting used to but they work. Suspension will come up against whatever suspension stops you have in place and stay there until you let off. Not recommended for the street.

It lives!!!! Taken right after I finished break in of new Crower solid lifter camshaft and adjusting carb. Idling at 1500 rpm. This one is quite a bit racier than my old cam. I wouldn't call it a lope, but it smooths out above 2000. It's 106 LCA running on a 102 Intake centerline with 70 degrees of overlap - I'm getting only 7.5" vacuum if I slow it down to 1000 rpm idle in park. At 1500 I get 12" vacuum and some power brakes. Fortunately torque converter is loose enough for pretty much any idle speed. Definitely not for the street. Now to put in my inner valve springs and readjust valves tomorrow. Note that I finally found a use for the old exhaust system I had on it before I went to fenderwell headers!
