    My old s3 had Salisbury axle and heavy duty leaf springs, it basically didn't have suspension.

    just keep cutting the ends off the short springs with a grinder till it gets comfy ,, all we ever did. granted you have to bend the retainers , but we never even took the springs out to do them .

    Many years ago we put a full set of parabolic springs on a SWB series three, it transformed the ride to that of a coil sprung defender.
