I would like to improve the performance of the suspension of my 67 427. I am considering using polygraphite bushings (p-s-t superfront end kit) and a composite 360 lb or 420 lb rear leaf spring along with 550 lb/inch front coils and 1 1/4 and 7/8 inch front and rear sway bars, respectively. I would welcome any opinions and advice on the worth of these mods or any others that would help. I am going to use torque thrust 2 wheels (17 inch , not sure of width) and the widest performance tires I can safely fit without cutting or damaging the bodywork. Thank you for any help provided.

67 427 suspension mods

Just a note to advise that the suspension mods mentioned were performed with fantastic results. The only further upgrade possible would be the monoleaf front suspension conversion which I am told produces G forces in the .95 range, if I do this I will report the results. I strongly recommend the 420 lb. monoleaf for the rear for instant improvements.
