Get "Coil Spring Specialties" to make some.... same cost as any new spring..

Our front Coils are very small diameter..

The '71-'74 Vega front springs are shorter than the '75 & up Vega & Monza springs due to a redesign of the lower A frame in '75 & up.
I believe the early springs are a good choice.
A second choice would be Chevette springs but I believe they have to be cut shorter to get the car at the correct height.
