rear suspension
#1
I am looking to replace the stock leaf springs in my Coupe as they do not have much spring left in them. I knowI could have them re-arched, but don't have the time for that due to her being my daily driver. I see hundreds of options for spring pound rates and different rear eyelet locations for raising and lowering the rear of the car. I replaced all of my front suspension with factory reproduction parts and would like to stay the same out back. Here is what I have found at National Parts Depot. What have you guys gone with and how do you like what you purchased? Thank you!

By the way my Mustang is a 1971 Grandé with a 302 and C4.

If you're looking to do a stock rebuild on the suspension as a nice driver, those springs should work just fine. They are Eaton springs, so you won't find better quality.

If you're looking for a firmer ride with more control, you can step up to the 138 lb rate competition suspension spring.
