68 BB, Stock suspension, Cragar, F70 x 14, and Tire rubs
Hey folks, hope you can help me out here. I have scanned this board and cannot quite find what I am am looking for.
I have a completely restored 68 396 SS L78, stock front suspension including reproduction shocks, stock reproduction HD coil springs, all new suspension parts. I have front power disc brakes. Running Goodyear Polyglas F70 x 14 with 14 x 7 Cragar SS with 3.875" backspacing. Have 17/32" spacer so Cragars clear disc braks. Problem is whenever I hit the slightest dip in road, the front end drops\bounces and I get rubbing. I am having hard time figuring out exactly where rub is, but I think it is the outer fender lip, passenger side for sure, perhaps driver side also. My guess is the 17\32" spacer may be the culprit, that it shoves the tire out just enough to cause problem. It that is so, I don't see a fix other than coil spring spacers or changing rims, which I don't plan on doing.
Any suggestions \ help would be appreciated.
