Who gave you that info on Moog 9012? Just wondering, as the wire thickness is .76" vs .81" stock springs, plus the spring rate is 498 lbs per inch vs 622 lbs per inch stock. That info I got off RockAuto if you look at Moog CC640, which is the stock replacement for the Astro. For the record, I'm not an expert, just stating some facts. Looks like the 9012 springs are for a Lincoln Mark V.

Send a pm to 97cargohauler his van is a lifted rear drive. best bet is to ask someone who has done it successfully.

I would say he knows what he is talking about. Compare the two yourself from Moog website, the 9012 are rated for a heavier load, are longer when unloaded, and are a constant rate vs variable rate.

Lots of people don't like getting PMs for stuff that is already in the forum or is better off in the forum for all to see. Not saying that is the case, but it's a possibility.

I think you bought the right stuff, good luck and be careful installing!

Fan-freaking-tastic DB! Glad to see you got everything in safely!


BTW: Don't worry about your English, it's just fine and much better than my Italian!

Do you remember what the part number was for the 1" taller ball joints on rockauto? From one of Shadow's old posts he said that his 9012 springs sagged after a few months. Have you noticed any sort of sagging since you installed them?
