Just curious on this, need opinions from those that have had experience. I have a front axle for my 40 chev coupe out of a 38 coupe. It has parallel springs on it. I was wanting to go with a transverse spring and radius arm set up. A friend said "why not go with the springs on it?" so I've been thinking now. I don't want it real high in the front, just a nice rake to look good. I know that the transverse spring is for a 2500 lb and under car so if something happened and I went with a bbc down the road, I might end up with a ill handling car. Even with the sb, it'll push 28 to 2900 LB. Those that have drove both, is there any difference in handling? I'm getting ready to get back on this thing, going to price some 2x3 box tubing this week.
