This is a great site. I've been lurking on here for a couple months, now I have a problem and would like to ask for some advice.
I have a '68 with a Chris Alston front end with 550 lb springs, subframe connectors, 9 in. with 350 gears, and a 350 turbo transmission. I recently got my 383 installed and got enough miles on it I felt comfortable stabbing the gas. When I did the old sagging monoleafs wrapped up and the snout on my rearend put some nifty dents in the floorpan. All this with street tires.
I was anticipating putting new leaf springs on, just not quite yet. But I can't go on long having this much torque ans not being able to fully enjoy it. I don't want traction bars, I do not plan on taking this car to the strip except maybe to see what it will do. I would like the car to handle well, though. Should I return to the monoleafs, or are multileafs more the way to go? How about spring rates? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
