Looks like the bushings are worn out.

Are those original shackle plates? I have just finished my 37 and mine do not look like that. Also where are you located in Michigan? Bill

scroll all the way to the bottom for various 1937 spring/suspension parts.

It also appears the rear shackle has took a hit to me..........take the shackle loose, make sure the springs align with the front shackle in correlation with the rear housing mount as well. A new set of bushings and plates should complete the job......and be sure to check out the front hangers as well.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.

FYI Those aren’t original shackles. The OEM have a single bolt in between the two bushings. And no rubber. Original spring mount was riveted on.




These old bolts are in my blood. Hard thing is focusing on just one.

Yes I am in Michigan I know the bushings are wore out but if I change them it will not solve the problem of the springs pushed outside of the frame

I know that I need new bushings and springs but that doesn’t fix the problem of the springs being pushed outside the frame

The front is good both rears look the same it’s almost like the springs moved out on the axle an inch on both sides is that possible?
