My grumble, not a rant. I set the car on its suspension and the front end a tad low, Model A front end. I pull the spring out, pull it apart, unreverse the reversed spring and added a short spring because the clamp might've been bottoming out. Put it all back together. Too high. Take it apart, biugger up a bushing in the process and consider swapping the Ford shackles for some of those modern ones with the plastic bushings, I happen to have a set that is missing 1 bushing. I go thru all my stash and did you know those aftermarket shackles are metric! well, I figure I'd just swap them out for some bushings I had that fit except they were 1/2" ID, no problem I could use a bolt. I'm good to go on the shackles. Take the spring back apart and reverse the unreversed spring that I reversed to begin with, reassemble leaving the additional spring in place and paint the spring package. Start reinstalling the spring and realize I can't use the new shackles because I had made the shackle perch to Ford bushing size and the bronze bushings were too large. Back to fixing the original Ford stuff all the while thinking 'I am not going to throw or break anything' I finally get the shackles and spring back on it without blooding myself, reinstall the tierod, wheels and tires to let it back down on the ground. A tad low. Virtually right back to where I started. Sometimes, you just need a break and have something go right. Damn!
