I will lower my 57 2” and see there is mono and multi springs available. What is the different and what is recommended? Better driving performance with mono spring? Or is it just “the look”?

Sounds like someone that sells multi leaf springs. If the main or top spring breaks it is the same consequences as a mono spring breaking.

I thought the article was well thought out.

A friend of mine broke a main leaf on his BBC powered 57 (from one of the popular suppliers) and it did just like the article described. In fact he wasn't even sure when it broke. It had traction bars and I'm sure that helped keep everything together.

And ironically he bought a replacement main leaf from Eaton Detroit and they hit the ride height on the money.

I have a pair of the same lowering springs for mine, and I'm pretty sure they didn't get the ride height right. I'll probably pitch them for a pair from Eaton Detroit.
