I'm confused on what your asking. Are the summit spring perches for a single mono leaf spring and your wondering if they will work on a multi leaf application? If so I couldn't tell ya.

If you have Mono Springs

Hey I ordered the summit leaf spring mounts for a rear end I am putting in my nova and started wondering if I would run into any problems since I am using multi leaf springs

Your going to have to buy the new weld on only axle housing perches for the rear, thats exactly where Im at, I have a brand new set of multileafs, and a Mono leaf car, BUT before I can put them in, I need a 90 dollar KIT, and then an 80 Dollar set of axle mounts " perches " and then I need to grind my old ones off, and weld the new ones on, such a huige PITA my cars rear is dragging the ground still
LOL

humm interisting
My question was if a universal spring perch would work with multi leaf springs
No where do they say that they will not work
But i Noticed that one company sells multi leaf spring perches also
thats why I was confused
I will just try and use what I ordered I do not see a reason it will not work

Use the basic spring perches $20 and ditch the G.M. spring perch design that's used with the rubber insulators. If you're throwing any amount of power at this you don't want to use the rubber insulators. We tried polyurthane insulators on my Son's multileaf setup and also cracked them, so now he is running with no insulators and we added a steel spacer to the spring pack to make up the thickness difference-rearend is solid mounted on the springs with no rubber etc... and it works great. Also use two U bolts and get rid of the T-bolts!!

Hey Josh I have a universal perch on my multi leaf car, it's a small pad about 3" X 5" and sits directly on the leafs unlike OE.

Here's a pic.
