Do it myself Coil Spring conversion

Last year I changed everything from the old Quadra-trac to the rear end. Now it has a Dana 300 with Titanium twin sticks and I made a wide track 20 with Ĺ wall tubing. That baby wonít bend. This year I plan to convert my rear end to coil springs. Iím fabricating everything myself (Iím Cheep) but I was wondering if anyone has done this with an AMC 20 rear end. If so, I would like to know how the heim joint was mounted on the pumpkin and any other tidbits of info I might need. PICS would be nice. Iím a machine shop supervisor and my next-door neighbor (aka my co-pilot) used to build racing buggies so the fab work is easy and cheepÖBEERÖ Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Do a search on the web for 1/4 elliptical and there should be several websites that show pictures. The heim joints should be in about the same location no matter what axle your using. I would think that the 1/4 elliptical would be pretty close in action to a coil spring.

I found the site and that looked wild. I was hoping that someone had done it with coils a heim joints.
Thanks
