I would not use the "620" springs like everyone else. I would use regular springs and cut the coils 1/2 turn at a time until I get it where I want it. This will keep a nice soft ride and let the tires stay in contact with the ground. Use the big Shelby front swaybar to control body roll during hard cornering. I also use a rear swaybar but some people feel it adds too much to oversteer for their liking.

On the rear, many cars are restored using "stock" springs that are way too high. There are many people more knowledgable that me that can point you to a site that explains what you want in rear springs.

Before you begin, lower the upper front control arms per the Shelby spec (see back of Branda catalog for details).

Beware of need at least 4 1/8" on 7'' wide wheels if you don't want to hammer the front fenders....(ugh!)
