All you need is weight distribution. My brother had a 59 Chevy Wagon back in the early seventies, it was raised a foot over stock. It had leaf springs on the rear with the axle under the springs and raise spindles on the front. Our dad got it for him as it was a trade in at the dealership he worked, he got it for $750 and it was a darn nice car, all new paint inside and out, it was nice. Anyway, he use to be able to pull the front tires off the ground with a few throttle pumps! People would crap when he opened the hood to the stock 283 with a two barrel and three speed with overdrive.
