So I got new 1" lowered leaf springs and installed them with the new shackles and bushings. I also narrowed a 9" and it is installed as well. Everything went in just perfect except my new gas-a-just shocks won't go up into place. They aren't long enough it seems. I tried jacking up the rear end to compress the leaf springs and the shocks still aren't quite there. So...do i have to put a lot of weight in the rear of the car for it to sit down enough or do the spring need to settle?....I'm lost here and don't know what to do. Im positive I ordered the right shocks. Could it be the spring plates? They are ron morris brand. Any advice would be awesome. Thanks!
