Anybody use Posies rear leafs on 41-48 ford?

I was considering a Posies rear parallel spring kit for the rear. They say that the springs mount inside the frame rails and clear the gas tank. I can't visualize how this would fit. Posies didn't have any installed pictures of the frame. I was hoping somebody here would. Also, If anybody has used them how is the ride?

Here are some pictures of the Posies kit I put in my '46 Ford sedan delivery. The first is the stock frame and the others show the installation. The pictures are old as this was done some time ago. Unfortunately, I don't know how the ride is as some projects just don't seem to get finished. The guy that installed the kit was impressed with the quality and he built frames for off road race trucks.

I used Posies springs on a 37 Ford and the installation went well and I thought the ride was very good.

Fabricator, I like you plan on redoing my car. I am making plans now on what direction to go with suspension. The front has a Camaro stub. The rear has some unidentified leafs. I was also thinking of a Wonderbar type suspension like Fatman makes for Mustangs. If the Posies kit is really that good it would save alot of fab time. More pic of ride height would be great. My car is just passable now, I want it lower in the rear. Thanks for the input!

No, they are not parallel. Just went out to garage and measured. They angle in 4 inches. Hope this helps.
