Here ya go, bolt in coil overs for stock front subframe. Got them on mine, they ride good!
I have qa1's on my 72 nova. They ride pretty good with my stock sub frame.
As I posted this I wish I went to their website.
Qa1s may have just trumped ridetechs for me. :D
What spring rate you guys get?
Using stock sway bar?
I'm looking into cpp quick ratio steering box either of you running it or similar.
Thanks again!
Steve

I have QA1 single adjustables up front. I went stiffer than recommended for street driving at 550 spring rate. My motor is all iron and the car is all metal. They recommended 450 i think. If you have fiberglass panels/aluminum block or heads it might change.

I also have a Borgeson 14:1 quick ratio steering box. Works great.

Where did you get the box?
Thanks
I just ordered these from summit,

I would love to go with Ridetech but there almost double the price.
I think I would agree I think I'm going to go with the same ones in 450 lb rate
Thanks guys!

The box is from Borgeson, but I bought it through summit.

I always talk to the manufacturers before I buy something though, and get a part #, because I want to get the right thing but it always costs less on summit.
