You did not mention your application but 5 leafs could make car set too high but you can always remove one leaf if you need to. Maybe the last one or second to last one if necessary. Not a big deal. I would run it a while and let them settle down before removing anything.

Anyone know if it's possible to remove a leaf with the multi-spring cluster still installed in the car or does need to be removed first.

Heart beat City sells the right ones. They have the correct ride height and they also are exact in appearance. I bought a set for my 69 SS about 6-7 years ago.

I believe when I bought mine, they were $369.

They are exact as my originals in appearance and the ride height is perfect.
I bought some 5 leafs from one of the repop companies back then. They came and I installed them but it sat a little high. I was going to order from eaton, but they dont have the original look I wanted.
The HB springs are definately more expensive and HB is the only one selling this style of spring. These are not what everyone else carries.

I've built a few old Camaros and Novas and in my experience the 5 leaf spring sits too high and the three leaf sits a little too low so I would recommend you go with the 4 leaf spring. If you are only able to get the 5 leaf version then you can remove just one leaf.

Thanks Guys. I think the Heartbeat city ones is what I was looking for. I think they may be the same as the ones Ricks has.
