Are there any multi leaf springs that fit a stock 1966 Nova?


I'm looking at CPP's mono leaf, not sure if I want the stock hight or 2" drop.

I want it a bit higher in back but unsure how the standard height or 2" drop will affect the look.

Any help is appreciated, maybe some pics and description of what you guys have.

Also any other brands/makers that are cheaper but good quality?
Thanks,

Richard

Here's a pic of my 67 with a set of "stock height" replacement multi-leaf springs.

Based on previous comparisons & discussions around here, it appears that most of the stock replacment springs out there are pretty much all made by the same manufacturer.

CPP has multi-leafs as well for 199

I was lucky enough to be in their showroom this weekend and found they have them. They aren't listed in their catalogue. Also, the Polyplus bushings for the mono leaf fit right in. I'll be installing mine this week. Ask for Chuck or Jim. They helped me and were great.

Lowered

I want to restore my 1966 Nova Wagon to stock height.
I just bought it.
It seems to have all stock components, but sits low. Still drums all around.
It definitely has some new front end components.
What are the most likely parts that make it lower, that I can replace with stock.
Thanks,
Ron

I hope you got my PM. I wouldnt touch a thing on that car. That thing is MEAN looking just the way it sits. Im guessing most will agree. However, it is yours so check my PM for advice.

Congrats!!!!!!!

Drop Blocks

Thanks Chris.
That did the trick for the rear.
It was a nice look, but the tail pipes scraped on the slightest dip.
How do I know if I have dropped spindles or short coils up front?
