Is there a solid benefit for a $200 set of springs?
Any brands that I should avoid?

over the years the springs will sag and change the ride and the steering ability.the ride hight will make everything change.driving is easyer when you can see where you are going,insted of looking at the moon.

I picked up the new leaf springs and a 3/4" sway bar from virginia classic for around $200. I didn't take measurements but the back is higher, stiffer and I couldn't be happier.

I have a set of 4.5" mid eyes from Scott Drake, got em about a year ago. Rides nice and sits where I want it to. I will be upgrading to split mono leafs by Calvert Racing though this summer.

How do you want the car to sit and how do you want it to ride? Those are 2 things to know when getting springs.
