I used Eaton-Detroit in the past, they work very well. Also they will re-arch your old.

I've installed several sets of Landrum monoleaf springs. All of mine arrived with a rubber insulated front bushing. If yours do not, let me know, I've got a couple of sets that were pressed out and replaced with aluminum bushings.

The springs are fine as long as you choose the correct weight rating at the outset. They fit with no problems.

NPD sells Eaton brand. I bought a pair for my convertible last year from NPD in one order and one was from Canada and the other from USA, but both had an Eaton sticker on them. You would think that by buying them in pairs you would get a matched set. right? No such luck. The Canadian one is now sagging and the US one isn't.
