I removed 4 leaves from the rear transverse buggy spring on my roadster when I installed tube shocks to dampen the ride. When built & delivered to me, the car did not have rear shocks. Will removing leaves from transverse buggy spring cause the shackle angle to change? The rear shackles of my roadster are approx. at a 10 degree angle when the car is sitting, not the correct 40-45 angle. If I jack the rear up from the frame approx. 2-3, the shackles regain the 45 angle. I have a 2 block on top of the spring to raise the rear of the car. With the car sitting on the ground, the distance between the rear shackle mounts is 40.750. The springs eye/eye distance is 40 with the car on the ground. Should I replace the spring with one that has a shorter eye/eye distance? Thoughts and opinions please.
