    K Member Identification

I feel that you will be very happy with the products in the immediate future! I bought a conversion mount to put a small block in place...

    cal trac woes

    We sometimes run a 10.5 x 30 Goodyear Radial on our 9 Sec SS Duster with brake. The taller tires seem to help on the sidewall wadding up. Have you experimented with RPMs on launch. I also run adjustable AFCO shocks rather than Calvert (Rancho) shocks once the cars get well into to 10s.

    First drive after brake upgrade, then - BANG!

    I have had several adjuster strip year ago before I started to jack weight off the car before adjusting ride height! That is my best hunch. I had a 63 Sport Fury on my chest trapped like a mouse in a trap for a couple hours be friend found me (no cell phones in the 60's).

    Any spring shop will have them for 1/4 that. They do not look exactly like OEM but work fine. I do ot reuse them but I am a Drag Racer and brutal on drivelines. For a regular daily driver =Probably not a issue.

    Adjustable Strut Rods

    I use PST on my race cars where they are legal for class. They make the car easier to stage and seem to lower the amount of shimmy when wheels come down from wheelies. Of Course, that may not be as important in your application.

    Front subframe sitting on bump stop ?

    I just cut down the stops on my race car. AutoZone has new ones and they are cheap. They adjust the bars and you can keep the ride height that you like. Check adjustment every month or two. Support the car so no weight on adjusters. I stripped one back in the 60s and dropped it on my chest.

    Leaf spring shackle angle

    The Superstock springs get much SHORTER in rear segment as the car lifts on initial hit of acceleration if your pinion angle is correct!

    Leaf spring shackle angle

    I think it is OK. As long as shackles do not flip forward they are OK. That being said I would add a spacer if it was on one of my race cars. Your bolts are questionable.
