If you have the original spring, you can remove some of the leaves to get the stance you want. Remove every other one.

As one of the Moderators here....let me be the first to WELCOME YOU here..

Most folks who retain a transverse spring under a Model A , use a aftermarket ( new ) spring made just for the purpose. It has reversed eyes ( 1 inch lower ) and the curve is less so that the Model A will sit lower while still having a soft spring rate for a good ride. The old Model A spring was engineered to hold the Model A up high ( 19 or 21 inch tires originally ) and the ride was not much of a concern back then.
