Default 67 Wagon Front Coils

Ames, Rock Island, Moog all the majors don't carry front coils for 67 wagons with A/C. I am thinking about just using what they have spec'd for a 4dr. Any ideas out there or alternatives.

I would give Detroit Eaton Spring a call, they were the OEM manufacturer of most springs used by the big 3 back in the day. They still have the blue prints for all the springs thay ever made, they have been very helpful and friendly when I used them in the past. No one had the springs for my 66 A/C equipped Lemans Sprint, they provided perfect replacements.

I used springs from OPGI for my catalina they have a stock with a/c spring.
I have a/c in my 68 wagon but I want to lower it a tad so Im going with the 1 inch drop to get it closer to the 2 inch drop in my hardtop

The front springs on a wagon are the same as the F40 spring for a sedan. they are designed to lift the car 1/2 to 1" compared to a sedan.
