    MkII vs Cressida, et al. Springs - for swapability...

    Hey folks,

    I'm hoping for a slight starting point here, I suppose, to aid in a junkyard search. My end-goal is to find springs for my MkII that have a slightly lower spring-rate so that I can cut those and lower the car (Since taking coils off increases spring rate). I'd rather not cut my stock springs, as I'd like to keep everything that is stock intact, and I don't want much of an increase in spring-rate.

    So, the purpose of this post: Spring rate aside for now... The starting point needs to be at least similar in shape to stock, since one end in the rears, for instance, has a smaller overall diameter. So, just hoping to see if anyone knows what cars share a similar overall shape front and rear. I imagine cressidas would be a good starting point and comparable to a Corona MkII setup in the rear? Front as well? Not familiar with Cressida front-ends. Thoughts?

    What year Mark II? Can you post some measurements of your current springs?
