Ok so I have an iron headed bbc car that’s back halved Dana 60 ladder bar n 33x 22 or so street radials. My coilovers have the adjustable perches off the axle they are eye to eye and I have two sets up upper holes to choose from that are only an inch in difference in height. The lowers perches I can move in increments of I’d say an inch in either direction. Currently the car has old vw shocks (for extension length purposes) and a set of 160 lbs in coilovers. Due to using what came w the car and in the trunk factor upon purchase I felt putting these together to see what I had in the end. Well I had to adjust the coilovers to maximum height to clear the freakin balloons of the tires out back I feel like the only give I have on pushing on the bumper is really just the air in those huge tires I’m feeling like I’ve basically locked the operation of my rear suspension w these coilovers. What’s a great place to start sorting this out? Imma weigh the 68 when my knee is better I just had surgery just wanted to know if anyone else has been here before

Whomever welded the brackets on should never weld anything again. I would triple check everything the previous owner touched.

On top of the bad welds they welded it to the cast iron center section. Probably broke off a couple times and they just stuck it back on.
