Dennis, Man, It took about FOUR minutes for this page to load!
Something is wrong with the net somewhere the last fiew days!
You have a fiew choices. Drill a new hole in the perch being careful not to drill too deep!
Then either shave the head of the center bolt with a grinder or use the polly pads.
I would try to leave the pads out on a car with some power like yours, and the short depth single leaf perches.
You really need to use the short lower plates for a multi leaf car.
Your shock travel in droop will be limited with the single leaf plates unless you use shock extenders.
You could also buy new multi-leaf perches and weld them on.
I have put some new spring perch and shock info and photos on my suspension page.
PS. I forgot to mentio a spacer plate with a hole on top of the spring will work too. It will lower the car by the thickness of the spacer. That's what I did on my 67 a long time ago.
