I was changing out my rear end and was taking my leaf springs of when they jsut fell apart. I was blown out because they were nice multi leaf. I need a new set of leafs. Has any bought a new pair of leafs ? and if so what kind and the price. I would like a multi leaf setup. I am going to be running slide a link trackion bars on the rear. The only leafs I see at summit are lowering leafs that lower the rear 1 1/2 inches. I really do not want to lower the car and they are mono or 2 leaf. I have 406 ci sbc that pulls close to 500 hp. In the next year or so i am making it a 427 stroker. What will be the best leaf for me? Any help would be awesome.

I just redid my entire rear suspension and purchased my multi leafs from Eaton Springs. So far (150 miles) I am very pleased.

I also believe John Calvert's Cal-Trac rear set-up works best on these cars. I have a split-mono and cal-tracs with a BBC and 4-spd. The rear plants very well but it is a bit noisy on the street if not preloaded for racing.

Two month before I have change the mono leaf springs of my Nova with a kit of 5 - leaf springs for 179$ from Classic Industries. The front eye bushing are already installed. I have also buy a kit with new Shakles and U - Bolts. Easy to assemble. Before the back was hanging down. Now the car is about 2 inch higher and back on the original high. Nice to look.

Landrum springs are good...before going with a 4 Link suspension I was seriously considering going with the Landrums.....and then adding Caltrac's to them.
