Leaf springs

Post by smithhe »

Does anyone have any experience with a certain manufacturer when it comes to replacement leaf springs specifically on the 64's? Im looking at either general spring or the ones listed on Mac's auto parts as heavy duty 5 leafs.

Did you like the springs from them? I’m thinking about going with those but I don’t want them to be too soft.

Haven’t ordered yet, but will shortly. Have a friend that got a set for his 66 Mustang and was happy with them.

The PO of my Comet got new springs from St. Louis Spring. They are definitely not soft.

Hey Smithhe, did you ever get your new leaf springs installed? If so, how are they working out for you?

Motor Safe,
Lee
