I was thinking of getting these springs for the Impala:

Moog 7170

Inside Diameter 4.000
Bar Diameter .812
Install Height 10.50
Load 1815
Spring Rate 845
Free Height 12.60
Should be around a 1" drop.

And maybe later for the rear:
80108, 5415, 5041, 8537, 5387,6381
Rates range from 169-198
All should be from 1/2"-1" drop.

Any thoughts?

and 5387 in the back (157 lb. for about -1/2") or just keep the SS stockers
