I would like to inquire about a front spring for a 1937 Ford Coupe, at this time it has an original front spring.
I would like to know what my options might be. From a single spring, to a reverse eye spring, or anything else you may suggest.
Let me give you a little more info. Right now the car is an old Streetrod most likely built in the late 70’s. I guess from what I was told it was a show car, so the frame is old but really clean (not a lot of rust ). It still has it’s wishbone that I am going to split and mount to the outside of the frame rails.
There is about 4.250" between the fender and the tire. I am looking to lower the car approx. 2" if possible, eventually he wants to go to an independent front end, however cost is preventing us from doing it now.
I can’t go too low as the fenders will hit the wheels and tires. I am a past customer of yours as you made my rear progressive springs for my 1960 Chevy Delivery and it rides awesome and that’s why I’m talking to you.
Thank you in advance for your help,
At the front end of the wishbone is where the spring mounts. When the wishbone is split and the back ends are moved outward, the front end pivots inward.
Without adjusting the spring mounts back out, the original length spring does not mount as it should.
2 ways to fix this problem are to
1.) Heat the ends and bend them back out (not recommended)
2.) Make the main plate a bit shorter on the new spring (recommended).
Measure the distance between the spring mounts BEFORE splitting the wishbone, then measure the distance after splitting and attaching the back ends.
Let us know the difference and we will make the new springs with reverse eyes and 2 Inches lower.
