I must say, that car looked and sounded great before the stock split

HOT ROD ON
unibody car folks, no frame. Called torque boxes


Think that's a good call, when you see the Leaf springs still attached to the axle, it seems like that's a good indication one of the mounting points failed causing that. Old car, been stressed once or twice, one would think.
Under a load, the leaf spring is twisted into a s shape that really puts a load on it's mounts. It also pulls the axle up towards the body, unlike a set of super stock springs that are two inches shorter in the front. Now the axle is being forced down and body up, makes the car look like it's jumping off the line and a whole lot better traction. They do work as advertised....
