Re: Rear Suspension
If you have 4 leaf rear springs you could just add a leaf, it will raise the car up some as the other 4 leafs wont flatten as much, we used to do that at a shop I worked at in the late 80,s. If you have 5 leaf springs you can subsitute 1 leaf for a thicker and longer leaf, or 1 with more arc. Sometimes it takes a little trial and error.
Check your phone book and talk to a spring and suspension company. It is a lot easier to add 1 leaf than change the whole springs. IMO.
