Oval Track Leaf Spring Mounting Point
Leaf spring mounting angles are one of the most important factors in a leaf spring system. In fact, it is more important to get the mounting angles correct than selecting the proper spring rate.
No matter what spring you put on the car it may not perform properlyif the angles are misaligned.
To counteract the effect of incorrect mounting angles, you may have to install erratic spring rates, shock rates, wheel off sets, unsuitable ride heights, and/or undesirable tire stagger, each of which will cause unpredictable handling characteristics.
