I love my car i have been fixing her up daily restoration and upkeep, and feel awful every pothole i hit every bump rock tree trunk out here in the wild west, and i want to beef up my suspension. i'm nt going off roading, (but the roads here arnt that difrnt) but for now where can i start i am looking at changing my brakes over to rear disks, and pipe dream..eventualy going with an indepndent rear axel, bu for now as far as leaf springs and shock absorbers, strut rods, front suspension, what can i do to save my car! to make the ride smoother, and better for the dirt roads and bumps...are there any kits? shock suggestions? i am thinking of raising it 3 inches all around, if itll help have bottumed out(at low speeds and cry everytime)thanks so much in advance guys any all suggestions welcome!
