    Default Zephyr wagon front suspension

    On my 79 Zephyr wagon with a small block and A/C, I would like to have a lowered stance along with excellent handling. I am installing an AJE front K-member, Mustang GT rack and spindles.

    So, here are my questions:

    1) Which front and rear coil springs will give me a lowered (2" all around) stance?
    2) If I decide to go with coil-overs what front spring rate do you recommend?
    3) What brand/source is a good
    low cost
    coil over?
    4) With a lowered stance what type of rack bushing do I need, off-set or standard?

    I have since partially solved my ride height situation in the front. I've purchased a set of AJE coil overs and KYB adjustable struts.
    Once everything is installed, engine, trans, tires and wheels and I will work on adjusting the height in the front and rear.
