Exclamation 1968 camaro in The Netherlands

Hello everybody,

My name is leon and i am living in the Netherlands.
I am a proud owner of a 1968 camaro.
I own the car for 5 years now, and it is my dream car.
Maybe some one can help me out with the following;
The rear leaf springs are worn out, and I would like to replace them.
Howe ever I do not know which one I should take.
The one that are on there now are 2 leaf spring.
Is this possible?
I cannot find any 2 leaf springs.
Or should that be 3 or mono leaf springs?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for now,

Leon

Welcome to the Club, Leon. Probably you're best bet would be the 3-leaf springs if you decide to keep the stock height of car.

Thanks for the advice.
Can you tell me what the differense is in height?
Will the car go up/down?

Hi Leon,

The car will go up with the more leafs you add. The suspension will also get stiffer and ride rougher with the more leafs you have. Moving from 2 to 3 will not make a huge difference.

I also have a 1968 Camaro. Take care.

I had the HOTCHKIS TOTAL VEHICLE SYSTEM (TVS) KIT, installed and like it very much. The shipping to you might be prohibitive, but many people carry them.

Good Luck.

Re: 1968 camaro in The Netherlands

Spring rates, the arch of the spring and the length of the shackle not the number of leafs will determin how the car sits. Example a 4 leaf or 5 leaf spring Z/28 in 1969 sat lower than a mono leaf plane jane V8 Camaro.

Welcome to TC Leon... Be sure to visit all the forums we have here. You will espically fine the Brake and Suspension forum helpful in choosing the right spring for your car.
