Re: Non-leaf spring rear suspension feedback
Even though the Hotchkis leafs have that extra overload spring to help with hop, I don't think it helps that the 67 had the shocks on the same side, as opposed to the staggered arrangement that GM went to on the 68 to help reduce the hop...maybe?
I have the Hotchkis leafs on my 68, around 500 lb/ft & HP at the wheel, no hop but way too much wrap. If I was just going down the drag strip I'd get Calvert or some old school slapper bars, I'm thinking about going to the torque arm myself.
