I put new rear springs in last weekend. All new bushings, shackles, and bolts too. I had one spring that was bent near the front eye. I am a bit dissapointed though as the car still seems a bit low in the back. This must be the way it is supposed to be though. I will be running a taller tire in the rear soon so maybe it's better it is a bit low in the rear now.

Here is a link to the before and after pictures.

Thanks guys,

Scoop, I really like the rims too. The only problem is I am going to disc brakes in the front. The hole in the rim is too small for the rotor hub. Now I need to decide weather to turn down the rotor hub or go to different rims. I was going to get 15x8 rims for my Drag Radials that looked just like the rims I have now. But because of the front rotor problem I may just go to Pro Stars and be done with it, I don't know yet.

I would have never picked those rims before seeing them on your car.They really do look cool.But I'm a fan of the pro star's too.I depends if you want the Ford muscle car look,or a HotRod,racer look.

Heres a few I dug up. Currently, I'm in the process of installing new exhaust. New headers from FPA are getting coated at HPC. Then re-do the exhaust, 3 xpipe, etc. Also just got a new bigs carb to replace the old 3310.
