    I am considering using Posies rear lowering spring kit for my 37 pickup. Anyone use their products for these year Dodges?
    Another viable option is using Dodge mini van or Voyauger leafs?
    Thoughts?
    I do have a 8 3/4 rear for it and Must II installed already
    All compliments of a fellow Hamber....:)

    Posies springs will still be higher than stock.You will still have to remove some leaves to bring it down.The steel technology from '37 is really different from today.Andy Bernbaum has the rear springs and shackle hardware/bushings.Do you have the shock isolater on the front driver side spring. I used a passenger side spring hanger on the drivers' side to eliminate that.St.Louis Spring has the specs to make springs from new.They will also need some adjusting for height,because the leaves they use are thicker.

    I lowered mine for free using 7 of the original 9 leaf springs. I was able to guy new shackles but I flipped them over. I then cut the rivets out of the original front frame mount flipped it over and only used two of the four original holes as I dropped the now top hole (bottom ones before turned upside down) and finished by welding the mount to the frame.
    I have patch panels for these trucks. www.37plyguy.com
