hi jackers for 1932 Hot rod front axle?

I came across a set of short model Hi Jackers for a front axle. (according to the seller, no make or numbers mentioned)



My project is a Citroen AC4 from 1932. I place a Ford 302 but use the standard front axle and the original leaf springs.
It would be good to have some adjustment when the stock springs seems to bear to much or the height is not what I hoped on.



Is placing hi-jackers the answer for me? Which model would be best? (compared to an A-Ford)
I have no mounting points yet so I am somewhat flexible with the length.

Hi-Jackers, are you talking about old fashion air shocks??

If so, never on the front as they have very poor damping ability.

If you need stronger springs just add a leaf or two.
Not a hard job!
