I'm slowly gathering parts for my 36 ford 5 window build. I'm looking for help on what to use to build the rear suspension from scratch. The car will have a 283 and probably chassis engineering complete front axle with 5-1/2" new drum brakes. For the rear I want to have a transverse rear spring. I have a 70 bronco small bearing rear axle, 58" drum to drum, same width as stock. I have 4-1/2" x 16 late 40s stock rims. I have no idea the best spring to use( plan to buy new as used parts are too rusty around here) All I have is 39 radius rods so I planned to build a set radius rods/ ladder bars( not sure of the right term) I would like to get it right first time and not learn by trial and error (my usual method of operation). Questions 1: best size spring length and width, number of leafs? 2: where to purchase spring perches and where to weld them width wise on axle? 3: I was looking at speedway precut mounting brackets for the radius rod/ ladder bar. Any suggestions on where to buy the brackets? 4: last question. I see that companies like So-cal sell 9" housings already welded up with perches and brackets on the bare housings. Can I weld up everything on my bench with out field fitting in the chassis? Does somebody has the specs where to weld everything. There are only 2 things that I actual know, one is that I'm going to use the 9" rear and want to have a transverse/buddy spring to match the front suspension.
