     Nice looking job on the coil spring conversion, but I was wondering, 
won't you need a panhard bar running from one side of the axle to the 
opposite side of the frame?  The rearend I got for my truck ('82 Trans Am, 
with coil springs) had a panhard bar to eliminate side to side play when 
cornering. Also had a similar bar running from the front right side of the 
pumpkin to a point somewhere mid-frame, parralell with the drive shaft. 
Can't remember the name of it but I think it was for prevention of "roll" of 
the rearend. Anyway I just thought I'd give my .02 worth and If I'm wrong 
then here's my chance to learn something. :)
