I bought coils and shocks for my 64 from Jamco Suspension. They should have from 0-3 lowering springs. I was happy with everything from them.

Why do you say they are not new. I can't tell from the picture.

They have mounting wear and pitting. There was clay and dirt on them as well. Not your typical dust and beat around from being on a shelf.

Also thank you for the sites. I gotta take a look

parts update:

New gas tank and sending unit, shipped
front disc brakes, rear disc brakes shipped
still on the fence if I should go for a street Demon carb or EFI. never did an EFI set up and may be easier to start the new motor with a carb at first.
also, trying to locate a more modern steering box that fits. has anyone had any luck putting in a newer montecarlo steering box or 90's caprice steering box in one of these vehicles?
