Re: First Gen - Widen Rear Inner Wheel Wells Slightly
You won't be able to get a dent in a good wheel well with a dead blow. I have the same setup on a '69 and it used to rub in fast turns so the serration on the side of the tires made a noise that scared me into thinking my rear end was whining. That was with some reproduction four leaf springs and new bushings. I moved everything over to another car, used Global West lowering springs (the softer of the two they offer), and used Energy Suspension heavy duty shackle kit and poly bushings in the rear of the leafs/frame only. It does not seem to rub with this setup. I think the poly bushings keep the rear from "swinging" a little like it was with the rubber ones, or rather keep the rear of the car from swinging over the axle. I retained the supplied rubber bushings in the front of the leafs though after reading that anything else could cause binding in aggressive cornering.
