Gunsmoke Posted July 12, 2015 Share Posted July 12, 2015 I am refrubishing the rear springs on my barnfind '31 CD8 Roadster which appears to have had the springs worked on in the past. The car came to me with 11 plies on each side, some had been cut off on ends(as if made from other londer plies) and as expected they were pretty rusty between plies and reluctant to flex much. I have a decent set of matching plies from a DC8 Dodge (same width and arch, all 1/4"). I plan to keep the current main springs on the CD8. The CD8 springs also had 2 thicker 3/8" plies on each side spaced within the set, and these had a groove/recess on underside, which I will also keep. The DC8 sets I have did not have these thicker plies. My question is how many plies did CD8 rear springs have? Were the thicker plies special to CD8's? I'm thinking 10 plies seems about right?
