Post Rear Leaf Springs 67 InLine 6

I have a 67 Inline 6 and want to replace the rear leaf. I just finished replace the front ball jouint, bushing, shocks and spring coils (THANKS TO ALL WHO HELPED IN THERE FEED BACK AND INPUT, This website is great ).
Now I'm off to replace the rear leaf springs and don't know where to start or that kind to buy. I want to keep my Camaro stock and want the stock look I like the stance it currently has where the rear is lifted up a bit. I read on a previous topice that some one used Calvert leafs. I just don't know the first thing about leafs and the do's and don't when buying them. Which should I use a single leaf or a mult leaf ?
Thanks in advance for your advice.

Have you done a search on this? I just did mine also,there is a great deal of info on this already. Do a search on leaf springs and be prepared to do alot of reading. Check out David Pozzi website.

67's only came with mono leafs. So from that stand point stay with the single leaf. If you don't care there are several multi leaf spring conversions that will work with your stock hangers. If the rear is still up in the air and not sagging why do you want to change them? Just put new bushing in.

Thumbs up Re: Rear Leaf Springs 67 InLine 6

You can't replace them with stock type re-pop's b/c NOBODY make's stock type double tapered mono springs that I know of!!

Check all this out on the 3-leaf, mono replacemrnts that I have put together and saved on this from here through the months/years past!!

"Here's the information on these springs. They are made by, (at that time), S&G Enterprises, Inc. Their website is S&G Enterprises and the part # is 21-245. They are made in Mexico. This same part shows up on this website Triangle Spring as factory replacement springs. They don't list the details such as spring rate on either site though.
My JCW cat. is number 671J-02 and the spring number is 94UA2669X at $62.95 each.

If this cross references to one of the the numbers you listed which should be the second one down.
More info on the JCW springs. According to the sticker on the springs I installed from Vette Brakes the JCW/Triangle and VB springs both have the same PN (21-245).

I am going to assume they are the same spring given the PN and the fact my VB springs were labled "Triangle". This would make the JCW springs #130.

The curious thing is after the install my rear end is about an inch higher with the VB springs than other who have used the JCW springs. (Yes, everything was tightned after it was on the ground)

Here is the thread with the info on my VB springs.
https://www.camaros.net/cgi-bin/forum...2.html?#000000
Just trying to keep all the pertinant info in one thread.

St. Louis Spring, (sell's them too), = 1-314-533-2132, Mon-Fri 7:30-4:30. Per Mike P."



And I have JCW's on my car now, BUT I did rework them by adding two more leaf's to each from my shot '68 'Bird multi's to better match my about 500 to 525 pound front coils.

Re: Rear Leaf Springs 67 InLine 6

I just received my 3 leaf springs from JCW and also my poly bushings, leaf pads and shock extenders. What else do I need to replace from mono to multi? My old plates have bolts welded to them, can I resuse the plates and hardware. I trying to advoid having to do any welding. I know I would have to drill a center hole on the plate for the bolt on the mult to fit.
