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!
