I just installed a 74 Camaro rear axle on my 59 Suburban. I removed the smallest two springs to drop the truck a little. Of course it's a little sloppy now and I don't like it. If I flip the springs and C notch, will I need to remove the body from the frame?
Also, I'm getting vibration at low speeds. I'm thinking the pinion angle may be off. Or is it the positive traction rear axle?
In these photos I had the shock mounts flipped as an experiment. It didn't work
