i did some searches for this and it looks like you can use coupe leafsprings on a wagon.is there any negative effect in doing this?
i broke one of my wagon springs and no one sells new wagon springs.if the coupe ones work with no issues i will just use them.

jonnyc,

The coupe spring will fit, but the wagon will sag. Measure the thickness of the coupe spring and compare it to your wagon spring, big difference. I do have an extra set of wagon springs and I'm right over the hill in Reno. Please email me at [email protected] if interested.

Thanks,

Dave

I wanted something a little stiffer in the back of my wagon.
I bought new rear multi leaf springs from ESPO Springs & Things.
I like a little rake so he added one leaf for a total of 5 versus what he usually sells. He had the pads, U-bolts, shakles, shoulder bolts, everything you need.
I may at some point install some lowering blocks or at least some wedges that will take the edge off the height a little bit. do a search on the above and you will find the web site.

I think there is alsoo a place in Michigan called EATON Spring or something like that who can make custom springs for a reasonable price. They advertise int he badck of some of the mags if I remember correctly.
