I want to point out that there are quite a few other cross overs for this spring too. that particular spring is coded 4V in the coil spring table of the Ford MPC.

When I rebuilt the front suspension on my J code Highland Green I attempted to duplicate factory markings:

Jacking my own thread.... Is that 3 bolt OEM, thought the '68's used the 4 bolt UCA?

Absolutely correct. BUT: 4 bolt UCA cost $270, 3 bolt UCA cost $75. Functionally identical, but a large cost differential.
Plus, the 3 bolt UCA's were/are the replacements for '67 & '68's. (Ref: NPD catalog page 83)

Yep, know they run more, was just not sure if my recollection was correct as to when the changeover occurred!

Somewhere around the start of 70 production. ;)

The original coils from my S code CSGT with the GT equipment group had yellow and green markings. They are 9 1/2 coils and 16 1/4" high with a .640" cross section . The sway bar also has yellow and green markings and is 15/16ths". I can post a pic later if wanted.
