I have also eliminated the buggy spring on my '27 T. It makes the old roadster handle pretty well with 4 corner coil overs with 4 bar suspension front and rear. I think I see a panhard bar on your front end? What rate springs did you use? I used 225# springs. It may be just a little stiff, but handles well. My car weighs 1050# on the front What does yours weigh on the front? The front suspension was modeled after a pavement sprint car.
