Thanks Hornman, I'll check it out. $40.00 in materials makes it temping to try on my own, maybe with a bit of adult supervision!

Anyone want to build me set? If so let me know what the price would be. I just don't have confidence in my welding abilities.

Do I need to run a breather style oil fill cap on my 1969 302? I have the pcv on the one valve cover and now it has a sealed cap on the other side. Thanks guys..

Good thoughts, I did make sure the stops are correct and they look stock, no customafacations. I'll fix the one side like to said and see if that helps, it almost feels ,looks like the power sterring ram is preventing the full turn to the left. I got the steering from chock-o so I believe it is right. I stood there and watched the  guy align the car, he is an old school mustang guy too so I think that is correct.

I cannot even get mine to hit the stops. I know on one side it is the headers hitting the steering linkage but the other way it stops a 1/4" from the stops.

Is there any way to decrease the turning radius on the 65 coupes? I have power streeing that won't let the spindles hit the stops on one side and the headers hit the sterring arm off the box on the other side, I can fix the header interferance but what about the power steering? Any set ups that will let this thing turn on less than a country mile? I'm almost 1/4 inch from the stops in either direction.

My 65 with 1 inch lowering front springs, 620#  and shelby drop
5 leaf stock ride rear springs
7x15 american racing wheels 4 inch back spacehttp://i58.tinypic.com/1409f6x.jpg

225-60-15 front
235-60-15 rear
I just put the rear leafs on, I'm hoping they settle a bit about 3/4 of an inch is what I hoping for if not I will have to through some weight in the trunk! LOL!

Yes the originals are 4 leaf.
The new ones raised the car 1 3/4 inches after a short test drive. (15 3/4" from center of rim to wheel opening)
My guess is they will settle a bit more and it should end up right where I wanted them.
The ride is a bit stiffer but not bad, better then my 1997 4x4 f 150.

The springs are the same height when they are side by side. no traction bars so no problem there. From the rust and lack of bushings I'm only assuming there are stock originals.

Ok I got my new, 5 leaf, stock ride height Scott Drake leaf springs. But, when I set the new ones up next to the old stock ones I noticed the bolt that fits into the u-bolt/shock bracket mount is about 1/2 inch towards the rear of the car than the stock ones. See the attached photos. What do you think? Big deal or not? I cannot think of reason this would hurt the car to move the rear end back a 1/2 inch. I don't think it will be real noticable in the wheel opening and the driveshaft lenght should be ok. Looking for input, thanks
