Moog replacement springs (again)

I'm so confused, starting to over think everything, reading all the FAQ's and done a bunch of searches

Doing a rebuild on my 84 TA, did the t56 swap, now spring and shocks, I have the KYB's and am looking for stock height springs, and moog is giving my parts guy;

5608, 5610 and 5642 for the fronts,

and CC635 for the rears.

I have a sub box with 2 12's so i'm not to concerned about the rears (thats the easy part) but the front everyone seems to go for the 5662's for the front with aren't listed for mine.

Should I just go with the recommended 5608's for the front? My AC is off, but I have t-roofs and SFC's, not looking to ride like a truck just so I'm not on my bumpstops with 30 year old coils hahaha!

My last car was an 1988 GTA (t roof auto) and I loved the way that drove stock, so anything close to that with my KYB's would be great. any input would be appreciated to help me stop overthinking it hahaha!

I really like my 5662's (with Koni Yellows). It rides and handles great. It's a street car only so I can't say for how they work at any kind of track. If you get some be warned for the first few months I didn't like that it was too high for my tastes but now four years on they are great.

Alright that fair enough, the car does tend to sit enough it probably wonít bother me, as long as the new KYBís can handle the new springs I think Iíll go with those, they seem to be the consistent spring everyone is putting on, and they are almost half the price of the other options which says they must be more popular.

I went with the 62 and the 35. I put the 35s in. I'm not sure how old my existing ones were but the looked the same except the new ones were about 1/2" higher unsprung and now the car sits a little higher. Rides great though. I have not done the fronts yet.
