I have replaced my old leaf pack with mono leafs that I bought from Custom Classics in Calif. I installed them on my 63 Ford stepside. It lowered my ride by 4". I have not completed the rod to drive it but they feel really firm and I believe it will ride OK. I did not want to change up the suspension much as I wanted to keep the old truck as close to original as possible. This provided an easy avenue for me to lower the frame and get the look I wanted. I also added disc brakes from one of their kits. I did not experience any interference with my steering box in using them. I realize this is a much later model vehicle than the one you are working on, but hope this helps anyway. I plan to do my 36 Coupe next and will look at more options for front and rear end retrofits.
