I'm using a set of NAPA 277-3033 (6490 Moog) springs in my '73 with a V8. They're 4-cylinder springs for deep-pocket '75-'80 Monza. I cut a coil off to lower it where I wanted, but should work well uncut for a stock ride height.

What master cylinder are you using? Does the backside of the piston have a dimple or inch-deep hole?

Lots of info here -- viewtopic.php?f=10&t=27892&start=0#p146486. You can also find a Moog spring chart in that thread.
