Put a 302 into my 64 the other day, but am lost right now. I put the V8 springs in, and with the engine installed it sits way too high. I can lean on the fender and put my 200 lbs on it and it really doesn't budge. The coils were the same length, just a bit beefier. I can't even get the steering in as there isn't enough room between the spindles to get the tie rods connected. Very aggravating.
