-Take out the over load? will be running an anti-wrap half-leaf on top.

-French the chevy hangers?

-Rotate the spring perches?

-Shims underneath the springs?

Pulling leafs won't do anything. Frenching is alot of work.

Rotate perches is less work then frenching. Just put shims in.

If you decide to run shims, (which I hate) make sure to get steel ones and weld them to the spring perches. The aluminum ones will break and get spit out at the worst possible time, happened to me on a drag car.

Myself, I would get new perches and do it right!!!

Thanks for the quick replies everyone! i hope to drive it tonight and see how bad the vibrations are.

It still bugs me to have the pinion sit at this angle, so ill grab so new perches and rotate that pinion up and out of the way.

Thanks y'all

You make no sense. Taller perch is the same as a block. it doesnt change the spring.
