DSE rear spring pocket kit

I am wondering if anyone has seen this setup installed. Does it do anything more than allow the front pocket vertical adjustment?

67RSSS......owned since 69. A basket case for most of it.

Re: DSE rear spring pocket kit

Other te allowing you do bolt front spring eye 1" higher I don't see it is worth $400 plus the labor to install.

It is stronger but I don't think the stock pocket is too weak and never seen one fail.

Re: DSE rear spring pocket kit

Raising the front spring mounting point was an idea I saw in a book by Herb Adams many years ago. It changes the suspension geometry slightly much like the Guldstran mod does to the front. Not sure that I could find said reference if I tried to give a better understanding of what effect it has. My concern would be interference to the top of the bracket if you were to redrill a stock one.

Herb Adams (a senior GM engineer who worked on the second generation Firebird suspension credited with the invention of the wonder bar) talked about it in his book "Chassis Engineering".
