The chilten manual is what we use.

Getting more room with new seats, Your screwed there buddy. From what I bin told the only way to get more room is to chop the wheel well. (I don't recomend doing this.)

Not a problem, I fit ok I just can't jump in and out like I could 30 years ago.
(owned a 65 when i was a kid)
How can I tell if my rear leaf springs might need to be replaced?
Looking from the side the rear is lower than the front by about 2 inches.
