Coil Spring 6 Cylinder 1964-1966 is rated out of 5 by 1.
Rated 2 out of 5 by JeffS from These springs are not suitable for 6 cylinder cars 8088 is a Moog part number. Moog used to make 3 different coil springs suitable for Falcons and Mustangs, 8086, 8088 and 8090. 8086s were the 6 cylinder springs. 8088s are the LD V8 springs and 8090s are the HD V8 springs. Sometime in the past, Moog and everyone else stopped making the 8086 springs, and slid the 8088 and 8090 springs down the scale, calling the 8088s the 6 cylinder spring and the 8090s the V8 spring. Spring rates varied with the equipment on the car, but 6 cylinder cars came with a coil with a spring rate of around 250 lbs./in and a total load around 1250 lbs. to 1300 lbs. The 8088 springs have a total load of 1540 lbs. 8088s will work on a 6 cylinder car, but unless you cut off a coil, you will end up with a great UFO spotter.

Hi, I'm getting ready to install my front coil springs (65 6cyl coupe) and I see that the springs are marked with a dab of white paint. Is the marked end the top or the bottom. My old springs have been out so long that I don't have a reference. Thanks
The coil springs will have a "flatter" end, that end would be the top of the spring.

What is the spring rate in pounds of the 6 cylinder spring. I am building a six for daily use and want to lower it without making it too rough. With stock springs and modern gas shocks it rides fine but a little soft for a "light" car.

The description says spring but the picture shows a pair, so are they sold as a pair or is it sold individually? Thanks
