Hello guys I have been lurking around for awhile so I decided to post.
I have a 1936 Chevy truck. It was built to drag race and the 70 year old rear suspension needs to be updated. The classes in my area are stock "type" suspension. Sence I have leaf springs I found the s-10 springs fit very close. I have to change the hangers of course but that no problem at all. I'm going to use Calvert 2" lower mono leafs and caltrac bars.
Now, my question is the spring eyes on the 36 are pretty much level. The spring eyes on the s-10 have the front 6" lower than the rear. Do you guys think that if I mount the s-10 spring level or 2" lower in the front I will have good results???
Can you guys tell me why modern 1960 + rear springs are lower in the front. Is it to retain pinion angle and ride quailty?
