Default Re: New to this, looking for advice

Welcome Cwillis! There are parts galore new and used around. The lean can be caused by a few things: a broken center spring bolt so a leaf has slid around, lack of shocks on one side or frozen ones on one side.

How is the wood in the Car? There are a few lists on what to do with a new car. Here are some from me:
-Get the original manual
-Join a club (put your location here for additional help.)
-Drain and replace all fluids
-Get the Ford factory 'manual' and Les Andrews books from the vendors. they have all sorts of parts for a stock suspension as well.
-Learn about your new kid and take her out as often as possible for the smiles galore.
-Shocks Bill Stipe Or get some origianls and have them rebuilt. It may take about 8 to get 4 good ones.
