Front Coil Overs

I put a Tubular K-member in my 1984 Mustang , and the tubular a-arms i got are for coilovers. I need a pair of coil-overs that will fit on any strut, anyone know of any universal coil over setups? Ive been looking at UPR , but theres is for lakewood struts and LRS is also.

Thanks

If it's solely a street car, I'd go with 225#. If it's more drag race oriented and your looking for more weight transfer, I'd go with 175#. From my own experience, you hardly ever get the spring rate right the first time. I've run 225, 175 and now have 150# in the front of my aluminum headed 502 cube '92 GT. Besides the aluminum heads I have a C/M tubular crossmember and control arms, so even though yours is a much lighter car- you probably have more weight on the nose than I have so I wouldn't go lighter than 175#.

14-130 is light for a big block , I tried 225-175 and 200 , i like the 14-200
if the car has enough power to pull the wheel pretty high and you let off the throttle the 14-130s will let things hit the ground.
