Well, my 78 Mustang II (T-top, V8, Ghia) has been sitting without a motor or trans since 94....I'll get around to it one of these days!

I wish I could say its because I've been too busy wheeling, but now that my engine is running, the bloody clutch is a bit too worn, and I still need to figure out/fabricate a hard top for the winter, and the garage still needs cleaning, and.....

I was hoping to get my rear springs installed before the snow hits. But gee its sure getting cold outside

So anyone have any idea how I can figure out how far apart to mount my spring hangers?

I had my springs made as long as he could make them, and with the arch I needed the springs by themselves ended up 58" center to center, now how much is that gonna change when I put the weight of the truck on them? I gotta figure that out, dont want to mount my spring hangers say 62" apart and then have them too close together, or too far apart, cause I have to move both to get the axle centered. AAAHHHHHH!

Gotta love horseshoe shaped springs, hee hee. I dont believe in lift blocks and super long u-bolts. At least not when running 38 inch tires.

I'll go with coils and a four link one day, I just gotta figure out what kind of rod ends I wanna use.

Dan.
