front spring

The crossover spring on my 36 pickup front axle has six leaves. is this enough to support a 350 engine plus accessories? I think it needs more leaves.

That should be plenty! Set the engine in there and see how much it settles

bad roads ?

The springs were designed for bad roads and hauling a load. If the truck is just going to be a cruiser you won't need as much spring. and you probably dont want "it to ride like a truck"

front spring

OK, thanks, I still have to replace all the bushings in the whole axle assy, just trying to get all my ducks in a row before I start.
