Q & A

What's in the Box

There's a lot riding on your springs-literally. Springs are your car's connection to the ground, and their performance is directly related to all other suspension components. Inconsistent, weak springs can cause a multitude of handling problems , and, in some cases, dangerous situations. When it comes to choosing coil springs, there are many alternatives, but if you want the best you can get, the choice is clear: CHOOSE AFCOILS. 

All AFCOILS carry a lifetime warranty to remain within 2% of the original nominal free height. Choose your rate. 

Fits 1973 Chevelle/Malibu; 1973-1988 Monte Carlo, Cutlass, Regal, Grand Prix; and 1970-1992 Camaro.

  • Coil spring is machine-ground on both ends to tolerances within 1 degree and then pressed to solid height and "pre-set" to eliminate any potential for additional set
  • Optimized material thickness and coil spacing to achieve the best possible design for each rate and height of spring in the product line
  • Super-high tensile strength chrome silicon wire for long life and and a consistent rate
  • Springs are cold wound on the latest automated coiling equipment and heat treated twice during manufacturing to withstand the most abusive conditions
  • To enhance durability, AFCOILS are shot-peened and coated with a durable finish

Application

  • 1973-83 CHEVELLE, MALIBU, EL CAMONO
  • 1973-88 MONTE CARLO, REGAL, GRAND PRIX
  • 1970-92 CAMARO, FIREBIRD

Notes

  • Black finish to be stock appearing
  • 11" tall - spacers not necessary
  • Fits most street stocks that require 5-1/2" springs
  • Rates specifically for racing

This spring is typically used in a street stock race car. Depending upon weight, track style, and specific setup information the recommended spring rate will change. I am not sure what you intend to use this spring for on your 36 Plymouth but I would guess that all the spring rates offered in this spring would be too stiff for you.

Yes this spring will fit a 1986 Monte Carlo SS. This will lower the ride height and provide a substantially stiffer ride. These springs are primarily used for circle track racing.

Tru-Coil street stock front coil springs are the best on the market hands down! These street stock front coil springs are designed exclusively for oval track racing, and are guaranteed to exceed expectations no matter what the track conditions are. Oval track racing conditions can be very rigorous, and that's why these coil springs are constructed from chrome vanadium steel.

Along with a chrome vanadium steel construction, these front coil springs have a powder coated finish. Powder coating is tougher than paint, resulting in a more durable product with superior corrosion protection. Tru-Coil street stock front coil springs feature a stealthy black color that looks like a stock spring, and performs like nothing else! They can be used with shims or weight jacks and come in various rates ranging from 925 to 1450. Varying rates allows a racer a greater range in their chassis setup. Spring rates are marked on the coil spring for easy identification. These street stock rear coil springs are ground flat on one end.

On top of superior strength and durability, incredible variety, and stealthy look, Tru-Coil street stock front coil springs are affordably priced! Such low prices make it extremely easy to experiment with different spring rates, allowing the racer to find the perfect one. You just can't find a better value on the market today. Don't settle for second place, slap some of these Tru-Coil street stock front coil springs on your street stock car and bring home the checkered flag!
