  Make sure the front spring mounting plate has the correct sized bolts. Bugsy 
my '68 Sprite had a problem with rear end wanting to come around when I'd go 
into a corner hard. It turns out the P.O. had changed out springs and did not 
reinstall with correct sized bolts. The whole front spring hanger was rotating 
and moved almost 1/2" when I went into a corner. There was a V shaped groove 
worn in the spring hanger plate that was not visible on all three mounting 
holes as it was covered up by large washers. It was only when I took things 
apart trying to do correct a problem with D.S. lean that I discovered the 
problem. I only corrected by changing out both spring hangers only to find out 
that the MOSS P.O.S. spring hangers needed to be ground down in order to fit 
into place and bolt up correctly.
