another sign they are blown out.


Everybody has shocks these days.  Marty has an updated set, Hervey sells
several options, and I'm running DMC Europe's adjustable shocks now
(they go from soft to rock hard without tools).

I am not interested in changing the ride height of the car, or investing
in the Eibach springs unless absolutely necessary. Would a pair of NOS
springs that haven't had the weight of the car on them for 28 years
provide the renewed stiffness that I'm looking for or would they also be
