What Valve Springs Are Y'all Using?

The title says it all. I'll be doing a cam swap (Melling MTA-1) when I get home and I'll be replacing the stock valve springs. I've used the Edelbrock 5832 "Sure Seat" springs in the past but was wondering if there was a cheaper/better solution as I've found a lot of Edelbrock stuff to be slightly "over priced" to say the least. So what are the IFSJA Engine Masters using? Edelbrocks? Some other aftermarket springs? Or are stock replacements just fine?

Now hopefully my carb will be done soon ;-)

those are probably fine for the money. you don't need a lotta spring with that cam. about 100lbs seated pressure fine. any more is just stressing stuff needlessly. i wish i could recall the springs i had in the 401. they were junk.

Info from Edelbrock's site:

Valve Springs - #5832

Seat Pressure - 89 lbs.
Installed Height - 1.812"
Open Pressure - 200 lbs. @ .425"
O.D. - 1.364"

Will these work on those '71 heads as well as the '79 heads?

Thanks, Mike!
Have you had a chance to work on that carb at all? I'm driving the Cherokee back down to California come February.
