Looking for a fresh pair of eyes on this project- I want to lower this 55 buick a few inches but dont want to go the airbag route. Probably going for lowered springs for the front but for the rear i wanted to install these 3" blocks I have. The problem is, the car has already been converted to a leaf spring rear with air shocks. When I installed the blocks, the spring mount (as pictured) closes the gap indicated by the arrows and contacts the inner part of the wheel. Some friends have suggested flipping them so that the shocks mount on the inside of the leaf spring, but that seems like bad news to me. Can I just cut that part off or will it mess with the integrity of the rest of the support? Feedback is appreciated.
