We put torsion bars out of a square when we restored it a few years ago 
so the back sits a little higher than it did before. The tires haven't 
worn that bad as in that picture yet. I usually run my air pressure 
about 20 PSI in the front and 28 PSI in the rear. That seems to have 
worked best for me over the years.
