    susp. lift with 2x2 square or angle iron?

    need to lift it a little, rear hangs up, articulates like a ford. I'd like to go 4 inches but probably wont woek well, but a 2 is a must. I'm guessing just a 2x2 square under what looks like a spring perch on a leaf? I think it used to be an old camper.

    your fine to go with a 2x4 to get 4" in height.... just make it about 16" long and angle the ends. Should be just fine.
