I have a 1936 ford pickup with a SBC and auto trans, the front axle is an early Super bell 4 inch drop and I believe a super glide reversed eye spring. The ride height measured at the lower part of the grill is 4.25 off the ground. I am looking to swap a 354 Hemi into it and I am concerned that the low ride height now will be too low for practical driving. I was considering swapping axles out to get extra ride height and lower the risk of destroying the grill. If I stand on the bumper my weight (250 lbs) lowers the truck by about a 1/2 inch so I feel the spring is good. I was looking into the Super Bell 32 Ford heavy duty reproduction axle as one choice and the other is a stock 35 ford axle. I read some reports that the new axles are not as strong as Henry steel. Is anybody using this axle now?
