They put real thick and harsh riding front springs on them I want to say ~72ish.

Seem to remember '71 springs are 140 Ø but less turn[s].

If you could find the dimensions in the green books you could figure out what 5" stock car springs to buy for not a lot of money.

At least not a lot of money to a shop guy spending the customer's money to get a car rolling again.

So the '71 dimension would be a plusher ride? This is actually a pile that I picked up for myself. So now I guess I need to switch to TB prices for everything I need

At $50 a spring the blue coils are still budget friendly.

I mean if you ain't got $100 I strongly recommend you find another hobby like Knitting!

I were kidding lol... But the knitting idea is probably a bit more sane I think
