Hello all,
I have three questions and hopefully I can get an answer to all or at least one.
1. Does any one know how much the rear leaf springs in a 67-70 Cougar weigh ?? Even an approximation from someone who has some old ones lying around would do.
2. Would anyone also know how much a basic 4-link suspension would be ?? (a lot tougher to answer)
3. How about theweight distribution of a 68 Cougar front and rear.

The reason I am asking is because this is now a project at school and we are using my car as a "test mule" so to speak to come up with some actual numbers and a design. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Jason

1. About 45-50 lbs per side is my guess. It has been a couple of months since I pulled a set and I remember each side being heavy.
2. check out www.ridetech.com. Their kits without the air ride parts are as low as $350. I've seen even lower (around $150) but you end up having spending at least $600 once you add coil springs, supports, etc.
