Thanks Alan,
So considering that ballpark, and the 215/T5 will be lighter even than the 185/3spd, I see a 13" FL spring with 185lbs/in as a starting point and cut for curb height? Thoughts?

I would wait until the engine is installed and running before playing around with the suspension and ride height.

I at least have to do the inner bushings, seemed more convenient to do them now with all the room. But at least my engine leveler came today so my hoist will be able to tip it in.
