RE: How best to raise back end?



I'm not bad mouthing your selection of bars, by no means.  Yours sound like they are just what you needed.  I just see people recommending getting super duty T bars & a sway bar to people building their cars, and in the end, cant figure out why they get no weight transfer racing.  Get asked all the time what is the trick setup I have?  Just recommending they decide what avenue they want to travel before they are replacing a second set of new Torsion Bars, removing a new sway bar, I have seen it happen any number of times.

.92 is not huge at all, just one step up from stock for my 318 Poly wagon.  Simply running Monroe shocks – ride is now less boat like – more new car like.....  Ride quality is like muffler sound – a subjective thing........

I would argue that point with you!  That is what everyone does, huge T bars to keep up with the Jones.  It all depends on how your going to drive your car.  On my 63 Sport Fury I have heaver T bars & sway bar,& KYB shocks because it is a driver.  On my 63 Fury I have 6 cylinder T bars and NO sway bar with 90/10 shocks.  Why would you do that you ask?  My SF I want to be stable in the curves while cursing through the country roads over hill and dale.  My Fury I go straight and want to get as much weight transfer as possible, the looser the suspension up front the better weight transfer I get.  Do I drive my Fury over hill & dale, NOPE!

Once you get the back end squared away – these cars can use more spring in the front – way under sprung back in the day.  I stepped up to at .92 dia torsion bars, much more compliant ride.  Mopar Performance P5249157.   Some step up even more in torsion bar size.

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
