69 racer,
I swapped my 69 coupe rear axel/mono springs for multi leafs. Immediately I noticed the difference. If your springs are over 30 years old to begin with...Then even NEW mono's will probably improve the feel. As far as hooking up @ the track...Multi's with a set of slapper bars is the way to go IMHO

If you can't see the bright side of life, try polishing the dull side...

thats a very good question, I also recently switched from mono to multi, but I also swapped the front springs as well, so i do't know how much the multi's helped compared to the fronts, but I do know that I added a significant amount of weight to the rear and mostly unsprung weight at that, which is not good.

Look into JCWhitney's '68/'74 Nova type cars three-leaf mono replacement springs..

Then order mono spring matching poly for pad, fronts and rears!

And don't forget that you will probably have to trim the poly pad mount pads so use a SHARP boxknife AND be REALLY CAREFUL b/c you can cut h-ll outta yourself... pdq67
