Which one should I choose? Your selection should be based mainly on the over all weight of your Corvette. The mid year or 63-67 Corvettes are lighter so the small block Corvettes should opt for the 400 lb spring. Do you have a big block? Then the 450 lb spring is a better choice. If you have a 68 to 79 the Corvette got heavier every year so the 450 lb for the small block cars and those of us that prefer a firm ride the 550 lb spring. For cruising and drag racing the single adjustable is great. If you choose a spring rate that you are disappointed in son't fret call us and we will swap it out for you, that way you will get exactly what you are striving to accomplice with your Corvette. If you race SCCA or road racing the double adjustable would be a better fit for you. This is a great improvement for little money especially when comparing to other options a front end kit can run 3000.00. You ask why the large diameter spring? If you use a smaller diameter spring it has to be longer to prevent coil bind. The longer spring requires the lower arm to be modified and that increases cost. This is a huge improvement for the money that's why it's on this site.
