    So give us a rundown of what you actually replaced. Looks like I was right about your old rear leafs being odd...

    Re: Test fitting new wheels

    There was apparently no question that the owner before me put in some "lifting" springs for whatever reason. I didn't put anything super special into the suspension since this car is strictly for cruising. In the past I have gone overboard because I like to put the best into whatever car I am working on. It took a lot of restraint to stick to the purpose of this car.

    The front was recently renewed prior to my purchase of the car so it didn't need a whole lot.

    Strut rods were replaced.
    New front lowering springs
    New front shocks
    New rear leafs
    New rear shocks

    The rear is usually not the problem but the front. The offset should be the biggset concern and measurement to check.
