Need help with my rear leaf spring mounts. What I have on there are some horrible looking super long home made hangers. But I can not find what should be there stock. Any help would be great, pics of what you have or what is stock or contact info to somebody that can help.

Thanks

I just looked in the '65 Nova assembly manual, found online here. You can put that in the search bar, the PDF of the assembly manual comes up, and you can check out all the part numbers and pictures.

I love that.

On page 39, you will see the setup for wagons. There is a bracket that bolts to the subframe, and then I think all the hardware is the same as a sedan or coupe: the side plates and bolts appear to be the same, and from my experience with both, they are. It's the brackets for wagon you may need.

Are you looking for a set of 66 leaf spring hangers or you have them already? Because I have a set somewhere in my shop. I just need to go find them. If you are interested let me know.

What I have is two steel straps that come down from a plate that appears to be bolted onto the frame. Then the leaf spring is bolted to the middle set of holes on those straps. I am looking at the '65 build manual for wagons and it doesn't look like that, the manual appears to show much shorter hangers.

So yes I am looking for the stock hangers, so I can get rid of these ones I currently have. Thanks guys

If you have the brackets that attach to the body then what you need is a stock set of spring shackles. They probably come with new rubber bushings.
