Re: Rear leaf spring problem
Oh man,, sorry to be away so long Chris but I've been checking out your gorgeous car.
It seems to me that if all is as intended, the spring eye shouldn't hit regardless of load. The bump stops above the axle would stop excessive movement. Also the pinion snubber might get involved too. But those would happen with crazy-heavy load, static or dynamic.
Something isn't as designed. Sure would love some pictures.
Here's mine. I just went under there and pulled the gas tank for this shot.
All original except the exhaust. And it's sitting on jack stands under the axle.
The other side.
Also notice, for what it's worth, the top of the tire is visible when on the ground. These are 16" wheels, 50 series gatorbacks.
I notice yours are much more hidden.
AND HOW'S THE WEATHER down there? Ours is great. Normal rain.
