What's in the Box

Info

Achieve a smoother, more comfortable ride with one of Posies Super Slide™ springs! The ends of the spring leaves of a Super Slide™ spring have a unique "dimple" shape that retains a moly-nylon button which works as a dry lubricant to stop leaf-to-leaf interference. This freedom from friction lets the spring move more easily, thereby giving a softer, quieter ride.

  • Made in the U.S.A. from high grade tempered steel
  • Reversed eyes for a 3" drop compared to stock
  • Get your ride lower without sacrificing ride comfort
  • Plain steel finish

Note: 580-2052 or 580-2057 are required to get full 3" drop.

Posie spring

October 13, 2015
Disappointed in spring drop. When installed the spring only lowered car 3/4". Reversed eye should have lowered car by 1" alone. Ended up taking 2nd and 3rd leaves out to get more drop. I probably could have done that to stock and saved $200.
No, I would not recommend this product.

Jackle ??_ Thanks for your review. We appreciate hearing from you. As it appears, you may have the incorrect set of shackles from a different order, those of which are not recommended with these leaf springs. Our Customer Service team has issued a credit reship to send you the correct shackles that should allow the car to sit lower. Please note that these springs allow you to remove one leaf as well as a secondary option. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and are always happy to help. Be sure to contact our helpful tech team at 800.979.0122 for further assistance.

No this spring will not work on your 1940 Ford. With this spring being 39” eye to eye this would leave your shackles straight down and when the weight was on the car the spring would flatten and extend past your perch boss leaving probability of the perch bottoming out on the spring which would likely cause major problems.

Can I use this with stock shackles? If the drop won't be the full 3 inches what will it be with stock shackles?

These shackles are 2 1/2" center to center of the bolts and 1" longer than the stock. Using your stock shackles would net 2" drop instead of 3 when using the dropped spring 5802100.

Is it possible to remove a leaf or two to get more drop out of this spring?

The spring is designed to hold the weight of the 1941-48 Ford cars and yes a leaf or two can be removed to lower it more but in doing so puts additional stress on the remaining leafs. Once the spring is to the point that it is flat with no arch you will find a very harsh ride with little suspension travel and may actually be bottomed out on the shackles. It is done frequently but not recommended.
