Re: How best to raise back end?



Another choice is to re-place the springs with new ones. I have friends that went the "re-arc" way only to have them sag again. IF you like the orginal look then you might want to think twice about going the long shackle route as they will stick down quite a bit. I have used air-shocks in the past but noticed a bit rougher ride with them altho it is a bit of fun to play around with diff pressures and ride heights. Good Luck with which ever choice you make.

They used to sell a rear shock with a coil spring around it as a load helper.  I put them in my car years ago and was very happy.

Don't eliminate air shocks from your decision to get that 2-3 inches of lift. Some poo-poo them, but they have always worked fine for me, and others, over the years.

My '62 Sport Fury sits low in the back end by at least 2-3 inches, I'm assuming because the leaf springs might be worn out?  We are thinking about getting leaf springs re-arc'd (there is a guy in Great Falls MT that does it), or perhaps putting on a longer rear spring shackle.  I looked on-line for a longer shackle but didn't immediately see one.  Any thoughts on where a guy could get a longer shackle, or whether it's better to have springs re-arc'd?  Thanks - Wade
