That is correct. The mounting pads for the 64-66 A body is different so you need to buy springs for 64-66. As far as which ones, it depends on what height and firmness you are after.

There are some spring spacers available that go under the spring. Were just checking out my brothers stash of different height spacers he made to get the perfect height he is looking for his new 8" rims and BFGs for his Goat. Used convert springs to get some height, may not be as stiff as wagon springs  Product Household hardware Auto part Metal Circle

The A body spring mounts on the axle not forward on the lower control arm like the full size and doesnt get the same mechanical advantage.
