Title: Rear Spring Question
Post by: Jason Goldsack on November 06, 2010, 06:45:32 AM
I was told only 65 to 73 C-body rear springs would fit my 65 Chrysler.. Is this right?

I think there is only a difference in the arc and the ratio.  But the 65 has more leaves than the fusies do.  You'll need cop springs.  But I can look it up in the hollander for you

that would be great.. I was told they normally don't replace the main leaf when your leaves are sagging.. they replace the second and third spring to make the arch again..

Is this right?

Doesn't sound right.  If springs are rearched, the main leaf is the most important one.  That's what gives the base for the ard.

that's what I thought.. he told me the pack makes the arch not the main leaf. You arch the main but the rest of the leaves hold the arch..

Oddly, to me anyway, Hollander says 65 to 73 is correct.

#226C
Chrysler 65-73
Dodge 65 880
Dodge Pass   65- 73 Polara-Monaco
Imperial 67-73
Plyme  65-70 Fury SW
Plyme Pass  71-73 Fury


What doesn't make sense to me is the 65 has 6 leaves and the 72 Monaco and 71 Fury have 4.  Sag city and there may be some handling issues.


A cop car or a ststion wagon makes more sense.
