Tech Question

Mark Cash, Cypress, TX, 71 Plym Cuda 440

I want to install leaf a spring relocation kit on my ’71’Cuda 440 for extra tire width. Can I still use my rear sway bar that cameon the car? Should I order standard or heavy duty rear leaf springs?

I think the sway bar’s end links will have enough lateral range to allowthis. If not, 5 minutes in a press (cold) would “narrow” the bar (reduce theincluded angle of the outer bends a tad).

Springs are your choice. If original 440 car, it came with XHD springs whichare quite good.
