Leaf springs


Recommended Posts

There used to be a spring company in Detroit that advertised that they made springs for Packard originally, but I haven't seen their ad for a couple years. I have a local spring company that makes truck leaf springs that has spec books that go back to the 30s and can rearch also. The actual main leaves come from a company in St. Louis. The master parts book may give you the spring rates and they may ask you the width, length and eye sizes also, so have that ready when you call them. I might have NOS shackles if you need them.

There is a place in Dayton that will make new springs for it, but I'm leaning toward trying new shocks with booster springs before replacing the springs ($500+) Any ideas where such shocks for my car would be available? Somtimes simple fixes are the best.
