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 1973-1983 Chevelle/Malibu; 1973-1988 Monte Carlo, Cutlass, Regal, and Grand Prix.

  • 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

Notes

  • Black finish to be stock appearing
  • Designed for use with intermediate rear suspensions
  • One pigtail end, one flat ground end
