51_Special, I've got a '50 Special I'm looking to lower. I took a quick look on RockAuto for the 78 El Camino rear springs...which ones brand/part# did you end up buying? There were quite a few different ones listed. Even I can afford $60-$70 for the pair, just want to buy the right ones. I'll look into getting some local help for cutting the 1-1/2 coils on the front.
