I plan on fabricating my own ladder bars for my falcon. The long style used in the 60's. but I cant find any good pictures of a vintage gasser that I can copy. did they have floating axle to spring mounts to stop binding? any help is appreciated.

Most of the early setups were way too long,, and the springs were seldom done with a floater bracket.. Thats why they didn't work well. They kept the springs from wrapping up but created a kind of "Skating" effect as the car went down the track.
