After a long winter of wire-wheeling, cleaning, fixing, painting, buying parts, etc etc..... I finally got the car down off the jackstands last night.

That weird old ladder bar setup was removed from the rear axle way back before Christmas; so I was crossing my fingers that the ride height of the car would not be adversly affected as I was lowering the floor jack....

And....the verdict....

The right leaf spring stack is completely shot.

The car now sits 2 inches lower on that side (as measured at the fenderwell). Left side is fine.

McVeigh Spring will be getting some of my money tomorrow.

I guess those old ladder bars really had things "bound up" under there.
