Hi all, I have a 66 BB 396 that I have 90% restored. The front drivers side seems to "sag". The front "leans" towards the drivers side. So today we took the Springs out to check everything out. The bushings are new and in place the shocks are new and the springs are new BB springs (OPGI). The A Arms are original. When we took the springs out it they were not seated correctly in the upper control arm so we set it correctly in the upper. But then the lowers were off on both sides. Is that normal? Are Control arms BB/SB specific? Are shocks BB/SB specific? I'm at a loss. The front also when turning feels like it is "floaty"
It is original steering box, can I tighten it up?

Thanks for the help!

Are you using a spring compressor ? You need to compress the spring so that it is curved. This will make it easier to install in the upper pocket and lower control arm correctly. As far as the floaty steering ,swap in a Jeep box, I just did it on my chevelle and it feels so much better
