What spring with a Hemi?


Hey guys, I have a 30' model A roadster with a 58' 392 2x4 carburated Hemi. This car was built in the 80's and I just purchased it to do a complete resto. My major issue with this car is the weight of the Hemi seems to be overpowering the suspension. It uses a steel "I" beam axel with the arch spring design. Currently It's bottomed out. The spring is a 4 leaf. What are all you guys using on your hot rods to work with the weight if these monster engines. Thanks, Ken
