  4. Any updates on the Posies 3" lowered rear springs? Curious, because I installed them on my '38 Plymouth Coupe. Mine ended up a little higher than with the stock 75 year old sagging springs & 3" blocks. I removed 2 leafs from each side & it's close to where I want it (I may add 1" blocks, but will wait a few months to see if they "settle"). Good thing is now there is no scrub line issue, as there was with the 3" blocks. What are you doing to the front to lower it, if at all?
