Default Rear Springs

Like new pair of MC1393 +1" rear springs from Eaton Detroit Spring (manufactured in USA). $225 shipped (in the original box).


If you bought new, they would be $274 (224 + 50 for +1") plus shipping (~50).

I use a spreadsheet to predict the curb height using the spring's characteristics. Can you please provide a spec card or make the following measurements?

These apparently are 68 and up springs. The 67 standard spring is MC1293, Iím surprised they fit. Did Eaton recommend them as a 1Ē taller version? The part number might make you think thatís the case. Iím interested but confused lol

1393 is what Eaton lists for 67 GTO convertible. Here's a screenshot. They fit fine. I bought +1" to see how they look on my car.
