"Just put the body back on the chassis and whoa! Used the original front and rear springs. I have read the front springs can hang up and not set properly on the top. The engine is installed".

"After looking more closely I noticed that the top of the spring appeared to be wedged against the top bolt holding the rebound bumper onto the base of the shock adsorber where the top of the spring resides. Upon loosening the top bolt of the rebound bumper I heard a spring like a piano dropped. The car settled out about an inch lower. The bolt I used was 3/4" in length, I think I will replace it with a 1/2" long bolt to avoid this in the future".
