Advice needed on firming up the rear mono leaf
Gday guys, I’ve got a 68 running 20” rims on mono leaf stock height springs, with 31 spline big flange ford 9” diff (axel) which has fabricated with lowered spring pads. It has a Performance Online (POL) rear disc brake (staggered shock) setup.
First problem, when I put it all together the first time the car sits that low that it bottomed out (hit bump stops) and actuated the park brake levers on top of the calipers, which dragged the rear brakes and cracked the rotors...
I love the ride height visually, but the rear is that soft if you push down on the rear bumper with one hand, the car moves down between an inch and inch and a half..
Is there a way I can firm up the rear suspension without having to fork out big dollars for a coil over or airbag setup? Would a set of multi leaf springs firm the rear up for cheap? If so what do you guys recommend?
Can’t seem to attach pics to show you guys, maybe it’s a newbie thing?
