Hi all,

Looking to do a RideTech Street Grip system on my '55 210 4 door wagon and wanted to find out if anyone has used the RideTech leaf spring in a chassis with a pocket kit installed?

I called RideTech and they could not say 100% it would work and do not know of anyone who has done it.

I want to use this kit but am debating if I am going to narrow the 8.8 rear end for some deeper offset wheels (love the look). From what I have read, the narrowed rear will not work with the stock spring locations due to caliper clearance.
