    In response to 4dr 57

Was starting to see that too many problems could develop with the single leaf setup, so I added two more
springs on each side, and my modified CalTracs setup using the frame as the lift point, while from an
engineering standpoint I know it will work, there were possible problems with that approach that I didn't want to deal with. So I turned the rotation pieces around as Calverts intended....

And added the 2-1/2" lowering blocks...

This caused the bottom plate under the springs to hit the rim of the brake drum, so had to trim that a bit....

Checking out different shock mounting locations for the QA1's, this is the location I used when I originally
set up the narrowed 9" rear back quite a few years ago...

I think it will work, but also looking at coming off the rear side of the suspension somewhere....
