It'll be better than the non-TL and prior leaf spring rear suspension. It's kind of like a drag racing ladder bar arrangement. The solidly attached trailing arms and "S" bar are simple and can handle pretty much any torque thrown at it.

yes i dont remeber what they are, in my first post i gave them up in i am new to packards need help. its a shame my car is a all number matching car. but the engine was bad! and the cost to build the packard drive train and what i had in the garage it was cheeper for me to do a transplant. sorry to all the packard die hards. but i have a 69 camaro, 70 and 1/2 camaro, and a 33 all steel 3 window with a flat head that has never been touched. as well as my custom harley so im looking for just a fun fast toy that that no not evry one has. you won't see too many packard clippers out there with a big block in them with more candy on it then willy wonkas factory >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> lol

Thanks, you cleaned up the fire wall, by closing the heater and fresh air, so I thought you might have done the same with the numbers.

Your Clipper looks great. I certianly will be sure to take your 55 off my want to play with list. Good luck with your project.
