You can't bend the springs using slapper bars that slap right in the bottom middle of the front spring eye.

Oh, the coil-overs are for adjusting the rear's side to side pre-load, kinda like what air bags do.

But I used mine to also raise my car up so I could mount way bigger tires under her!

At one time, I had 9.50/14 mud and snow tires under my '67 and they were like 29.5" in dia, but narrow. I could barely slide my fingers between the tire and the finders front and rear.

Next were my great big L-60/14's that tape measured a 298/53-14 so weren't anywhere near a 60 tire!
