Murf: Just as Willys36 said, don't go to parallel leaf springs, I did that on a 40 Willys A/Gas car in the late 60's , Had the springs rearched to raise the front, looked wild. First rundown the strip, fine until I crossed the line and shut her down.. Left turn Clyde... Scared the livin ******* out of me. Changed it to Coil over shocks on a tube axel and radius arms. Made sure the up and down movement in the drag link was at a minimum and things improved greatly... Later on I built a vega B/Gas car and put a rack and pinion on a tube Axel...A little tricky on the set up but the car handled like a dream....Glenn K
