I did this for a show,was a summer camp one year and the theme was mad max. All you have to do is get some thick enough plate,bout 4-5mm thick. Think I made the metal about 20 inches long and about 3inches wide. down the centre of the metal I drilled holes about 2 inches apart. Then I just replaced the brackets i'd made with the rear leaf spring brackets right at the back of the car,made it sit up at the rear end a treat. I don't know what this would handle like on the road, as this car was driven on private land and never on the road with this mod.

It's been a while since I did this,must be near on 9 years LOL so you might have to re-measure to get some better measurements. Sadly the car was scrapped after the show as it was rotten and I never managed to get round to getting the brackets off.
