I need to get my 67 Ventura off the ground. The stock springs all around need replacing i believe. I've seen the Moog replacement springs online, does anyone have a good recommendation to get my big car off the ground?

Man, she looks great to me...big bodies always look great low! I'm not sure of the correct ride height though, so i can't help you there. Moog makes good springs, but if yours are already stock height, then putting stock height back in won't gain you much.

form the pic, looks like the back end is low. If the rear is coil springs, You might try a 1 inch spacer under the spring. Raising the rear 1" will raise the front very slightly.

I installed new rear springs from OPG & still had to buy spacer to get rear end up !! i installed front 1" drop springs but should have got the 3" to get it lower than the old stock ones !! over an inch higher than the old worn springs, but now settling back down but just not low enough !! learning curve!!

Excellent quality & fit was perfect but more than 1 1/2" you will need shock extenders !!

Most new springs seem to be too high and raising one of these cars throws the suspension geometry all off.. Jacking the rear end up is one of the worst things you can do to one of these positive caster limited cars...

That 67 sits nice!
