I'm trying to find out the correct way to mount a leafspring from scratch. I have a 51 mercury and Im running a caddy 500 motor. I am shooting for high 11's in the 1/4. I have never set up a leafspring rearend for this type of power. I want to drive it on the streets and keep it simple. I have checked out ladder bars setups with the floating leafsprings but I have seen so many different ways of doing it that I am a lost in how to do it. I have a ford 9" rearend to swap out and I want to have this car real low. Maybe get drop leafs made for the 51 frame for the baseline and put on a Alston ladderbar and floater kit?? I want to have it drive nice and hookup. Any pointers will help!!!
