Any advice on getting a softer ride?
I have leafs all the way around on a '32 Chevy. At spring rebuild time I bought teflon tape designed to lay between each leaf. The spring shop liked the idea and we did it. I'm happy with the results. It is an iten available from all of the After Market vendors. Talk to your favotite vendor and ask thenm to get you whatever length (mine came in a roll) and then cut it to length. Remember to leave an accomodation for the center bolt. It even eliminated the spring noise I used to have.
