    Hi everyone, from floor level how tall is it to the top side of the spring on a model a 4 inch dropped axle with weight on the car. a v8 installed. 4.50-5.00-16's reverse eye multi leaf spring. Trying to mock up my 29 sedan close to ride height.

    Ok, what I'm need is mainly the whole dimension axle tires and all. If someone had a driving car and could just throw a tape from the floor to the top of the spring. I know it'll be hard to get exact with the spring in the crossmember but should be able to get real close, thanks
