Re: Super Stock Springs



Things have changed now days, but back in the day when we attended the clinics at GSD in Chicago we were told to not adjust the drivers T bar because that defeated the whole purpose of the extra leaf.  The leaf was to compensate for torque, so the end result was you had equal pressure L & R to the ground and did not lift your left front tire.  Also we were told to use six cylinder T bars & 90/10 shocks for better weight transfer, not the ultra stiff ones everyone wants on their cars today that restrict suspension travel.  I got several inches of lift from the front and a few inches of lift using the 002 & 003 springs with a pinion snubber.  It would hook-up using Mickey Thompson N50-15s on the street back then and really hook with slicks.  My Barracuda sat with a nose down attitude but when you jumped on it it stood up and ran with a nose up attitude quite away down the track/road, unless I was playing with the competition to not beat them by too much.  Also they recommended using the stock (Short) hangers on B body's pulling the axle forward an inch or so for weight transfer.  I don't know if this info helped because that was then and this now, things change!  I am currently using this old school setup on my 63 Fury with great success using street radials.

jeff,
i have experience with 002/003 springs.  the 002/003 leaves are .300" thick vs. .250" on the 456/457.  002/3 have a 7/8" rear bushings (A body) compared to 1" for the 456/7.  the 002/3 will right rougher as they are stiffer and the 002 (right side) is pre-loaded (having a higher arch compared to the 003-left).  you will have to raise the driver's side torsion bar to get the car to sit level.  with the correct pinion angle and tires the 002/3 really hook.
