Default Coil spring height

I was wondering if any one knows the height of the front and rear coil springs
when new, I'm sure mine have sag over the years and want to get it back to the original ride height, I know it a silly question but , i really would like to know how much i have lost over the years..thanks

Check this site out. It may answer any or all your questions! IMHO, spring weight would depend on all option weights over the basic model.

I can look it up for you if you give me the application. Like oldtinsmith said, will depend on year make and model obviously, what motor it had and weather it had A/C

So factory specs, free height of the front springs is 15.19", rears are 14.75". These measurements are out of the box, not installed on the car.
