Rear Leaf Spring Help

I am currently on the suspension phase of my restoration and ran into some bad news. The Multi (5) leaf spring on the drivers side of my '69 are twisted and inverted. The passenger side looks to be OK and able to be saved. Any suggestions as to where to go for a replacement on driver side leafs? I'm trying to make this car as orginal as possiable.
Thanks in advance for any and all help.

Re: Rear Leaf Spring Help

If you're going to replace one, IMHO you should replace both, or you could end up with a list to the side of the older spring.

You should be able to get some through any of the popular resto parts suppliers like Classic Industries, Year One, etc.

Or go with some performance/ lowering springs from DSE or Hotchkis.

Re: Rear Leaf Spring Help

Eaton Spring made them originally if you want new one's!! They ended up w/ like 20 to 30,000 spring drawings!!

Do a search for them.

And there are two of them so make sure you get the right place.
