Buenos días!
Necesito ayuda con la altura de mi coche, esta muy bajo y me gustaría subirlo un poco.
Es amortiguacion por ballestas detrás y muelles delante.
Hay alguna forma para poder aumentar su altura?
Muchas gracias y disculpas por escribir en español.

Hello!
I need help with the height of my car, it is very low and I would like to raise it a little.
It is damped by leaf springs at the rear and springs at the front.
Is there any way to increase your height?
Thank you very much and apologies for writing in Spanish

"Helper" leafs and coil spacers will help in the short term but ride quality suffers greatly as the springs loose their ability to support the car.
Best solution is to replace with new.
There are a good number of suppliers available.
Let's see photos!

Kanter lists springs as available. Folks report that they ship overseas.

Kanter 1955-56 Springs

Other folks report that springs for Packards are available from Eaton Detroit Spring, though you have to call or otherwise contact them as they do not list parts for Packards on their website.

Eaton Detroit Spring

Max Merrit lists Front Coil springs but not rear leaf springs. But it's possible they do have them, just not listed.

There are a lot of different kinds of helper springs, from "add a leaf" kits to things that go on top of the spring

Over the top Helper Spring

To this, which is what I have used on my 1953 with some success until I get around to replacing the rear leaf springs.

There may be lowering blocks in the back. These can be easily removed to restore more height. The front coil springs may have had a coil or two removed. The best way to raise the front would be to buy new springs.
