  • Rear springs

    while I had the 61 hawk out I noticed the car is jacked up in the back( I had the rear leafs worked on and new incerts installed) Where I had a little clearance issue before on the passenger side rear now I don't have any trouble getting the tire on. Will the body come back down to earth or will I have to live with this? The front springs are the same hight however they are very sturdy. The ride was very comfortable.

    By "incerts", do you mean bushings?
    Were the leaves re-arched or any of them replaced?

      My 61 was the same way when it left the shop after having the springs re-arched. After about 300-400 miles it settled to an acceptable height.

        It was rearched and the inserts I am refering to is the plastic liners.Everything is very firm. I don't like the jacked up look. The bushings and all were replaced.

          As Wayen indicated, I would live with it for a while.
