Now I chose the 308's for my pace car.
I was VERY happy with the results, Iknow they are not identical to what you are asking about, but just wanted to mention how well the moogs fit and ride now, they were very affordable.

Hey thanks for the reply Indy !! I went with the 6312 because it was very close to what I removed which was the GM original "HQ" springs. I called Moog and got the specs to match the GM springs. I have read nothing but unhappy campers with the 6308.  I'm glad they worked for you.  Car doesn't sit too low???

I did not realize folks were struggling with the 308's.
My ORIG springs were gone and had alum spacers installed and the thing rode like a disney ride.
I instaled the moogs and was worried how it would turn out, I must disclose I installed a set of RICK's 5 leaf concours rears also.
It is a tad low and the Radials rub when at full lock and backing up a uneven road surface. Works perfect with the repop bias ply's (GY WT F70-14)
Her is a snap shot or two.
The ride is a bit harsh but I like the steering wheel feel and displays flat cornering given the stock underpinnings.

Note the picture by the tree does not count, very uneven area, you can see the car is canted funny

Nice car Indy!  I also installed Ricks 5 leafs (correct)  in back.  I sent the coil springs to get powdercoated in bare steel as they where originally.  Haven't installed them just yet.  Thanks for the pics.
