1929 Ford Rear Perch Dimensions

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Suicide rear spring setup 1929 Ford Tudor sedan with V8 engine

My rear 10 leaf spring set measures 41" from eye to eye. I am told I should allow 3" on each side to compress the spring set.

Plus the shackles are 1-1/2" each. I am trying to set up a bare axle tube for perches.

my calculations:

41" springs eye to eye

6" Spring compression

3" shackles

50" total perch eye to perch eye centers

please advise
