Rear leaf spring question

Postby Shifty » Tue May 09, 2017 4:50 am

Hey everyone. I posted in the general forum but haven't gotten any replies, so I figured I'd try here too. I'm tearing down the rear of my 67 sweptline to do some frame paint and suspension work. I was wondering how many leafs I should expect to have in the rear leaf spring pack. I think someone at one time tried to do some lowering, because the front springs are all sorts of messed up and I'm replacing them but I'm not sure if the rear leafs had been messed with. I plan on doing some new bushings and leaf spring pads but I'm curious if they are stock. The truck is a 1967 D100 Sweptline shortbox 2WD 318. The pic below are the springs in question. Thanks!

Thanks Txas2step!! That is probably alright to run for me, since I want it a bit lower and I don't plan on hauling anything with this truck. Hopefully that thought process is a good one! haha
