Now to test out my idea for using the Ford leafspring. I have no idea what sort of spring rate this car actually needs.
I bolted it to the crossmember and let the ends rest on the control arms
too high and this thing was solid as ****! The weight of the jag and my fat *** on the crossmember didn't hardly budge it!
pull out a bunch of leaves
but still not much movement. you think the rust has any thing to do with that? ...duh!
I cleaned up the leaves and greased everything up (and pulled one more leaf). ...lots better!
I added some of the removed leaves to the bottom of the pack to raise the pack (lower the car)
close enough until the car gets more weight. I'm sure I will have to fine tune it some more.
