I am looking to lower my 67 ‘B one inch all around, having a hard time finding the all of needed springs from one source. Vic British’s lowered front coils are not available at the moment & what I see on Moss’s site does not seem clear (regarding the the front coils) as to what the end result ride height would be. Also Moss’s rear springs seem a bit pricey. Anyone have any suggestions for one stop shopping for front & rear springs. Front coils need (I believe) to be a higher rate as well for the needed improved handling results. I’m looking to improve handling but still keep as a daily driver. Thanks in advance for any help here. Regards Morris556

Les... your avatar says SoCal, Google spring shops.

Most of the lowered front coils are going to be at a much high spring rate. If you think your B rides like a buckboard now, wait till you go from 480 LbIn springs to 600 LbIn springs!

Find someone who can wind you a set of 480 springs that are roughly 1/2" shorter than stock and the front will ride 1" lower under load.

For the rear... contact Dave at Fab Tec and get a set of his lowering blocks. They are a 4 piece set which allow you to trim to your desired height.
