Which rear springs to use?

Hello
I have a 1275 Convertible and I am going to lower the car. The original 5 leaf rear springs need replaced (sagging on 1 side and possibly original) so should I go for 5 or 7 leafs? It has a telescopic damper fitted.
Cheers

Upgrade points dizzy or replace?

Hello Apologies as Im sure this has been asked before. I have a 1275 Ital engine (is this an A+?) and plan to upgrade to electronic ignition. Is the better option to upgrade to a new dizzy, with a new coil I assume or use one of the upgrade lumenation/accuspark type systems? Many thanks folks Jamiexr2

Any advice on a saloon conversion

Hello I'm going to look at a 1968 saloon which has been converted to a convertible a while back. Its got a 1275 and 5 speed. Are there any points in particular that I should be checking? Vendor also seemed to think it had Ford struts. Again, anything I should be aware of? I know old cars quite well ...
