    hey guys, so the rear of my Roadrunner isn't sitting even. the drivers side is lower by 3/4 of an inch compared to the right side rear. the car is 100% restored and the leaf springs are painted so I'm not sure if they are new. I think its best if I replace them. right now the car is sitting on factory height. I Want the back to raise up a couple of inches, where do you guys suggest I buy new beefed up leaf springs from?

    New springs will set pretty flat. Do you have a spring shop that can re-arch those and maybe add a leaf. Some will tell you to put air shocks on but I advise against it the cross member is light weight and they ride like a buck board.

    I replaced my springs with new hemi springs from Eaton Detroit springs. There is an extra leaf on the right side. I think I ordered them to ride one inch higher than stock.

    Well I got mine six leaf with a 2 and half inch recurve. From General Spring company. That way I don't need Air shock's. Looked into air bag lift kit but they are really high in cost. Figured leaf springs work all these years so why change now. Shipping was pretty Quick to Fla. Give them a call and check the price. :)

    I'm converting to the RMS StreetLynx or Gerst triangulated rear suspension systems.
    Either one is about $2k
    I'm ditching the 1880s wagon suspension design.
    With the coilovers, you can also adjust ride height.
