When I took my originals out in 1983, all of the shorter leaves on both sides were broken in half right at the alignment bolt hole, the only one supporting the weight of the car was the main leaf that ran from the front bushing to the rear shackles.
Do you remember how many miles were on the leaves at the time you removed them?
