The leaf springs are under the axle, so a u-bolt lift kit doesn't work.  or does it?

Thanks for any info!!!!

Lift the rear end that is.

you could to a spring over conversion, parts are free (other then new u bolts etc) just have to move the spring perches and re bolt it up, its relatively labor intensive although. or the easier route would be to find a new set of springs that lift the rear up slightly, i would assume its for drag racing so blocks would be crap....

A jack stand would help you just twist the handle and the car MAGICALLY RAISES!!! OMG!!!


to bad all you have to do is criticize other peoples replies, way to go!

So? I'm 15 and i've known how to use a jack since before I could spell it. (Included is a picture of a 71 Nova I am rebuilding)
