Model A replacing the FRONT leaf with coilovers!
I would like to upgrade the handling on my Model A aftermarket tube axle. I plan to remove the front leaf, and install adjustable coil-over shocks. My current plan is to reverse the perch bolt and use a 5/8" x 6" bolt through the inverted perch to support the shock bottom. Any thoughts on the strength of this perch tube? The front end weights 1150lbs. (See the picture mock-up) Better ideas welcome!
