That sounds great, Yards. I’d like to see the spindles assembled and your brake setup when you get it done. I know you’ve gone around in circles with the coil springs. Normally for most cars we can weigh the car and calculate a spring rate, but I know there are not many options for springs on the Rivs. Have you looked at the Jamco lowering springs? I think they offer 3 levels of drop, with a rate matched for the car, which might be more on-target than cutting a stocker. I would also think a company like Eaton would have something, I believe I used Eaton on my ’69 back in the day.
