On my 71 Nova I have two differant leaf springs on the rear.


On the driver side I have a 3 leaf spring and on the passanger side I have a 5 leaf.

Is this standard ? and what spring is better ?

Also, what springs from what cars are interchangable ?

:confused:I'd say that having 2 different springs was odd. Maybe a previous owner subbed what he had or what he could find to replace a broken one. Mine came with 5 leaf springs as a "Sports Suspension" option. I'm sure you'll get more answers.
