Beginning to tear down the new project (49 Anglia) for a total rebuild, right now it has a straight axle with front springs that are 26 inches eye to eye and 4 leafs per spring. I weigh 200 pounds and a friend of the same weight sat on the front end and could not get the springs to bend any at all. I will be putting a small block with a fiberglass front end or at least fiberglass fenders. I think these springs are not the correct ones for this application. I don't have any ideal what spring rate these are. What do you think would be the right length and spring rate I will need?
