Okay, so I flipped the rear leaf spring shackles on my '49 Merc a long while ago...The rear suspension is Jamco 4" lowering springs, 4" lowering blocks, and flipped shackles (shackles point up) to get it to the ride height I really wanted. This is how I came out from the rebuild with this car, and never drove it with the shackles pointing down, so I have nothing to compare the ride stiffness to other than different vehicles. I have put over 4000 miles on the car this way, and I have to say, it rides Very stiff in the rear. By stiff I mean the only thing I have driven that is more stiff is my '98 Dodge dually...Would this excessively stiff ride be caused by the shackles being flipped up? I got to questioning this because I built a '53 Ford Mainline for my fiancé (and it has a completely stock rear suspension setup, which is pretty much the same setup as a stock Mercury rear suspension) and that '53 has the shackles pointing down and rides like a dream in comparison...Any thoughts on this fellas? I know quite a few guys on here have done the shackle flip to get the ride height down...Does anybody have any experience with this either way that would possibly shed some light on this? I guess I should prolly also mention that it's a '79 camaro rear end and I have the Merc rear axle bump stops removed...Any insights would be greatly appreciated!
