Thanks to birdman1 and those who responded on the thread "1939 Ford too low" I have a '40 Tudor with a 4" axle and a Posie reversed-eye spring. We had to use two 3/8" spacers on top of the spring to get sufficient road clearance. I plan to change to a non-reverse-eye spring and remove the spacers, hopefully preserving the stance I like (chin is now 5" from the floor). However, the ride is currently awful compared to a stock '40 Ford and I'm hoping to improve that. I have speculated that the narrow axle might be the problem. Compared to a stock '40 the axle is 3 1/2" narrower and the spring is 5 3/4" narrower. My question is: can I hope to approach the ride of a stock '40 with a different spring or does the narrow axle condemn me to the roughest ride I have experienced since we torched the springs on my mother's '49 Ford back in the fifties?
