Given that the older units (up to early '47?)were built to handle a max capacity load over mostly rough, unpaved roads, they all seem to be "oversprung" by today's standards. I am looking at eliminating a leaf or two on my '46 but will likely also have a spring shop do it. Unloaded, mine sits a good 4" high in the rear and given the construction I'm doing, it will never see anything near it's intended max load of about 3500#'s. Based on my most recent calcs, it should only come out at about 30% of max (1050#'s) even when fully wet.
But I will confess that given the budget...I'd go with airbags.
