351w deck height?

I have a 351w that I am rebuilding and am having a heck of a time finding pistons.
Everything my local shop has found so far is for a 9.5 deck height, where they say I need pistons set for a 9.2 dh.

The casting # is c90E-6015-B8 if that helps.

Yes, Racer, wise words.

351w = 9.5 deck

351c = 9.2 deck

either pistons, in a variety of deck heights are availible.

I agree with racer and eb5.6, but a good combination for the 351w is a 302c rod with a 327chev piston. It is a mutch better set up as the gudgeon and top ring are in better positions for oil flow.
