Re: GMC Savana coil springs

Get a MOOG Catalog and look up the stock replacement coils for your vehicle - you can get all the specs on that spring from the catalog and then look for springs with the differences you are looking for. You say you want "stiffer" but what does that really mean to you? Are you looking for more load capacity ("stiffer") or more ride height, or combination of both? Proper spring selection, while simple, is very misunderstood.

Re: GMC Savana coil springs

Hi;

I tried using Federal Mogul's online look up for a 2007 Savana and it didn't have a coil spring listing.

Try it yourself with the proper year:

Doesn't it have torsion bars?

You can adjust those a little. Otherwise, next best option may be some timbrens.
