I want the rear to be level with the front, how many leafs and what type of spring should I get? My entire front end is rebuilt, and I have a 200 CID motor, thanks.

I can tell you which springs not to get! the 5 leaf springs will give you a ride like a pogo stick.they're track pieces

I have 5s wish I went with 4s or 4.5s. On a 6 cylinder car the stock springs will bring it up if yours are sagging. To get level you might consider the mid-eye option... standard setup may put the rear higher than the front...

really depends on what you did in the front though? On a six cylinder you are likely pretty high (less weight) if you are running stock springs.

i have (new) stock springs up front, i can always lower the front to level it out with the rear, I just don't want a really harsh ride and the rear end sitting up too high.
