Leaf spings, mono or multi?

This might be something really simple but something I have always wondered about. What is the difference between a multi leaf shackle and a mono? Other than the obvious, one being stronger than the other. Why would they use a mono if a multi is better? Did the rs model come stock with a mono? I have a 68 rs and it has the mono leaf shackles, but my 68 I had 20 years ago was a stock coupe with multi leafs with the same motor as the rs ( 327 ). Can someone shed some light on this?

Re: Leaf spings, mono or multi?

Ken - I believe there was just one shackle used not a seperate one for mono and multi leafs. Are you refering to spring perches and shock plates by chance?

RS was a dress-up package. Any Camaro could get the headlights and trim items. It had no bearing on springs.

Re: Leaf spings, mono or multi?

Now the later '68/'69 staggered stud shock plates are a lot heavier than the through-bolt non-staggered '67 plates b/c through-bolt is actually stronger so the metal can be thinner.

This is b/c the later stud jobbers have to be a lot heavier to resist the stud's bending moment on the plate..

Hope this helps..
