    Dayuum that's cool...is it my eyes or did someone lean mod that steering wheel.

    That will make a very unique hauler...getting the groceries will never be the same again...

    Congratulations @livertucky

    Here's how she looks sitting on the ground again. I don't have a starting height because the old leafspring was busted but looks lower than others I've seen online. 20181128_193406.jpeg

    Got the brakes unlocked and rolled her out for a bath the other day. Sagging on the passenger side so need to look at the shocks. 20181202_155302_HDR.jpeg 20181202_155249_HDR.jpeg 20181202_155136_HDR.jpeg

    Looks like you may need one more spring?

    It just has the one rear leafspring but I'm thinking the lever arm shocks all need fresh juice as they've been sitting for so long. Hopefully I don't need to rebuild/replace them.

    I was thinking more like the front spring, or maybe it has a crossmember issue. The shocks themselves, should not be holding it up, unless they are too tight. Cool truck, has anyone called it a hearse yet?

  20. The sag on the right front is most likely due to either a broken spring leaf or a cracked/broken crossmember, both common problems on Fords of that vintage.

    OK. I have a set of springs for the front. I'll see if that fixes it. Haha no one has yet. Maybe thats the route I take her

    Thanks. I'm going to replace the front springs and see if that helps. Crossmember looks OK.
