'53 Stude - Air Over Leaf Install - Cont - Mar 4, 2007

At this point in the project I do not have an onboard air control system, I have some pieces, but still need to acquire the rest. So, I just installed a short piece of air line with a Shraeder valve on the end for each air bag. That way I can raise and lower the car with shop air until I have the rest complete. In the pictures below you can see the car at the low height, then near the highest height. I took the car for a test drive to see if the stronger springs and new bushings made a difference in performace. I am very pleased so far. All the clunk noises are gone and I no longer feel the axle wrapping up. I still have a little vibration under certain conditions and may need to adjust the pinion angle. I did a burn-out in the drive way (picture 3). You can see evidence of one done previously that only spun the right tire because of the weak springs allowing the right side to lift, then you can see the most recent one where both tires spun evenly, though the right tire was a little low on air by the mark. The car seems to hook up much better also. I will declare this a success! Next step will be the onboard air system. Thanks for looking.
