So far 727/NP229 is the main upgrade. Diffs are next. New front coil springs last summer (before I broke my shoulder) 235/75/15 but they touch a bit.

looks good & how bad to those tires touch? I need new tires for mine looking to go no bigger than 225/75 or 235/65 R15's. An will 16" tires fit these cars without any problems?

225/75r15's fit without flares. 16" rims would fit I talked to a Tire place and they looked up sizes. May not get an aggressive tread to fit because of diameter but a street tire will..

With the added leaf in the back and coil boosters in the front (I think the Javelin springs may be stronger than the new Concord V8 springs I put in but it rides nice) it won't touch with a load in it anymore. The air ride shocks are leaking badly now.

Did all the eagles come with air shocks? Mine are in bad shape an I am doing away with the air shocks an going with Monroe Sensa Trac shocks for towing an stuff will see how these do.

No, auto load leveling was an option. If you are getting rid of them someone may want the compressor, lines and auto adjuster linkage.

could not find the compressor any were on the car. Only thing I found was the lines you had to undo a cover an then put a compressor to them to manually shoot air into them.

Compressor, if there is one, is under the hood, passenger side inner fender wall. Perhaps you have an aftermarket setup on yours which fill manually.
