they should, i dont see why they wouldnt
i know you can swap el camino springs to a malibu and it gives it a lot better stance so im guessing yes you could use them in a monte, and it does raise it up a little bit
and i also know monte springs will fit in a chevelle/malibu so im guessing theyre all interchangable

awesome
and idk if wagon springs are any different than el camino because you gotta figure an elky has to be able to carry a heavier load than a station wagon because of things you can put in the bed
so, idk how to help you there haha unless we can get indyg3 to take a picture of his rear springs and i can tell you if mine are any different
honestly i think i might go with the air shocks like my elky has and mount the air pressure thing somewhere in the trunk so i can adjust the height in case i ever change wheels or something

nice nice let me know how it works out
im just not sure if i want the rallys or a different type like buick or i might even fall into the corvette rims even tho im not too sure on those dont really like corvettes haha
but the airshocks could always help you never know if ill be carrying a heavy load in the big a$$ trunk haha, or maybe one day add a trailer hitch lol

What brand have you been using? I've seen some last 10+ years. Once in a great while you can even find some that were installed in the 70's or 80's that are still inflatable.

Sam, here's a thread for you to check out:

rago that helped some didnt have elky spring stats but going of that and some estimating to the heavy side wagon springs would not only restore height and give about .25-.30 inch of lift

If you don't find a set of Elky springs (which G3NUT's might be?) look into the JCW springs I pointed out in that thread. Tough as nails & lift the rear just enough to have that classic rake. Very Happy
