What steering set up are you using, and have you mounted a rear panhard yet?
I believe that, more than anything, over inflation is the problem. The repro tire companies suggest mid-30s PSI on their tires without any consideration for the weight of the car or the car manufacturer's recommended levels. I run 24 PSI in my daily-driven '39 Tudor's bias ply tires. I have had no issues with the bias tires, using the FORD recommendations rather than the Coker recommendations.
Interesting. I ran just over 20 psi in the tires on my '36 (avatar). Any more and it was twitch, dart-y, and wandered. That has nothing to do of course with cross steering shoving the axle around in the shackles, but, yeah, tire pressure makes a big difference. And, Vega box, cross steer, and no rear bar.
I made a new tab for the panhard bar and welded it on. While I had the torch and grinder out I trimmed center piece of X member to be able drop the transmission if needed without pulling the front sheet metal off.
