Old overload springs in the rear, stock in the front. The perspective makes the front seem higher than it really is. It sits kind of funny (rake) so I’m going to lift the front about 2” as well.

The M90 does not need or use a pilot/spigot bearing. There is a bushing pressed into the crank on M90 equipped cars but it is only there for the tool to center the clutch disc upon installation.
