Well i asked a few questions about this not to long ago and didnt get to many answers about what people thought.i am thinking of going to front coil-over shocks in the front. But cant deside on what weight rating to go with. when i look into it all i see different weight rating eveywhere. is the stock weight rating 350 for a 1973 nova with small block? if not what is it? maybe that will help out. I have small block 383 alum heads,alum radatior,tub a-arms,no inner bumper and shocks,fiberglass hood,and no inner wheel wells so i think i would be a little bite lighter so would 250 weight rating be not enough it will be for street/strip but i dont want it all over the place. This is the kit i was thinking of or should i stick with the 350 weight?

The Heidts Superride 2 front end for my '67 came with 500# springs. I'm installing a 6.0 all aluminum ls motor. I replaced the 500# with 400#. I haven't really driven it yet, but the 500# had no "give". I hope that helps.
