      Plywood is stronger but wood is the way to go and is cheap. If you make a mistake, you dont lose much but time.

      You changed the ride height which changed other things like camber and castor. If you lowered the car drastically, then you will be running into other problems in the future.

      You can also put chalk on your tires all the way around the edges(inside edge and outer) and see if it rubs off on anything.

      Your rear wheels track a little different when the car is moving. Youll find it sooner or later. If your new springs are adjustable, try lifting it slightly and see if it helps.

      If anyone needs help

      I had fun doing this. If anyone in the Toronto area ever needs a hand doing this, just drop buy after picking up your bushings at Frisco for less than 50 bucks. Let me know.

      Your axle is not bent but your trailing arm is. Get hold of a cheap lazer level. I have one that is 16" long and with the hub caps off it sits right on the edge of the rim. Drive your car straight...
