lowering leaf springs
Just wondering if anyone knows of a place in bris or GC that resets leaf springs instead of using lowering blocks.

be wary of simply lowering stock springs. Basically all that does is straighten the spring that increases travel as spring is bouncier. Also shackles can bottom out. Al

blocks are a better option than they seem because you retain most of suspension travel but if you lower it a fair bit an extra leaf is essential

yeah right, so for a casual weekend cruiser blocks are not so bad ? I had them on my eh ute years ago and had no problems , but have had resets for other cars.

blocks aren't legal everywhere. But if you can i'd run them. I lowered the hk properly with extra leaf and shortened main leaf but my mate owns a springworks in hobart.

I just sold them for $120 to dirtcowboy, they were great, never had a problem.
