Leaf Spring Change 5 leaf to?
Like lots of us, funds dictated the purchase of budget-friendly leaf springs many years ago.
I purchased the Grabatrack 5 leaf reverse eye springs. As the car evolved, especially the front suspension, the stiffness of the rear suspension is noteable.
So there are two things I want when I change out the rear springs. Day to day driveability (a little less harshness) and better overall handling. (more compliant)
I don't want to lose any ride height and I have caltracs that fit the reverse eye springs. I think I can get a different front bracket, from calvert if I want a pair, butI'm not sure that's necessary yet.
In reading the 5 leaf springs that I have now are rated at 195 lb/in
TCP claims their 5 leaf is 140 lb/in
or 4 leaf at 112 lb/in
So if those numbers are correct, what do you think, is the 195 to 140 enough of a change?
