I have a front axle with a 4" drop and was trying to decide on what spring..reverse eye...

In your opinion, what stance is best on a 1931 roadster..Should I buy reverse eye springs..

It's more of a matter taste than anything. I like them as low as they will go reversed spring would be good. Are you going to run the spring in the stock location on a stock crossmemeber or something else? what about the attitude of the entire car what kind of tires and wheels are running a stock frame or Z'ing it etc. etc. The words Model "A" Roadster are like a blank canvas. Do some searches on pics and see if you can identify a particular look that your after then stay with the plan and go for that look.

I kinda like a 32 roadster look. I picked up a Fatman Vintage IFS setup off the HAMB for a good deal. The front tuble axle had a 4" drop.

With that said, it is a 1931 Model A frame with a stock cross member.

I am confused are you going to use the I beam suspension or an IFS? Just my opinion but an IFS should only go on a car that has fenders, and unfortunatley Model A fenders won't hide an IFS suspension very well.

The Fatman Vintage IFS is part IFS..part straight axle.
