    Since I haven't finished, I can't comment on height. I have a V8 in the pickup so that heavy weight might bring the front down over a 6 or 4. Springs can be ordered with different spring rates. Shock absorbers will also affect ride quality.

      I have a 59 lark that steers like a cranky dinosaur. Hard to make it turn and not too sharp! fron end fully rebuilt by a Stude specialist. King pins, bell crank, proper alignment. Has Avanti brakes, Chevy v8. Tried and failed with tire sizes from 185 78 15 to 215 65 16, std. and quick steer arms. Smoothies, FWD alloy (with a spacer), RWD alloys. all to no avail. It drives nice on the road, just don't turn. My wife cannot drive it at all. Help?!

        I'd start a new thread so more people would click on it.

        Sold my 1962; Studeless at the moment

        Borrowed Bams50's sigline here:

        "Do they all not, by mere virtue of having survived as relics of a bygone era, amass a level of respect perhaps not accorded to them when they were new?"
