Photos 889 -891 - Drivers spring installed.  Ignore the finger prints from the gloves.  You will also note off to the side you will see I also installed new (actually used but still flexable vs the originals had dry-rotted) rocker "drain flappers" (technical term)

Thanks for the interest and replies.  Took a little break but hope to start having updates more often.



Leaf springs are out and note that the original 4 leafs are still there but a 5th leaf was added.  This was a common in drag racing applications.  I do not plan to remove the 5th leaf as I thing it is a part of the cars story.

Photos 811 - 813 - Leaf springs after removal.




As you can see from the previous photos the condition of the original leaf springs & perches.  An additional spring was added at some point and since I am trying to get it back how it was I left the 5th spring in place.
