I want to do a static drop on my 1950 Ford coupe and I want to keep the nice ride. what is your experience with ride quality of lowering blocks VS de-arced leaf springs for lowering the rear? seems taking the arc out of the leaf springs will make for a stiffer ride. I have never liked the idea of stacked lowering blocks either, too many stories of blocks cracking. I did pick up a set of 1951 leaf spring shackles that are shorter then 49-50 shackles so that will give me about 1.5 inches to start with but, I need more drop. my car sits very HIGH, and it needs to come down a lot but not too much. I am not looking for a ridiculously low drop, no bags for this one. this is my daily driver and I am just not into the 4X4 look.
