To cure my 1971 Mach 1 SCJ from bottoming out so easily, I removed the leaf springs and installed a new set of springs, bushings, and bolts from Eaton Springs in Detroit. The car does ride a bit stiffer, but still seems to bottom out in rear way too easily. New shocks installed a year or so ago. Wondering if these ponies require extra heavy duty shocks in rear. What experience have you had?
