Re: [Chrysler300] Leaf spring pads/THEWORD!





My first clue should have been that no one carries them!

My second big clue should have been that they do not appear anywhere in the 1962 parts manual
.
Laura, at Springs n Things , who has been incredibly helpful at sorting this out set me straight:

"Most earlier cars don't use pads.  There are some of the full-size ones that started in around 68 to use them.  The B, E & A bodies don't use them.  They started again in 73 to use them.  Those actually look like ones similar to Cadillacs I think.  I don't carry them though but had come across a set or two years back. You shouldn't need them. That perch doesn’t look like it uses them."

Thanks for all the help!

I've ordered a set of new leaf springs for my G from Eaton spring, along with the 'installation kit' .  Does anyone know if these items are part of that kit?  I presume the pads between the leafs are pre-installed, but was unaware that there were pads between the springs and the axle itself.

The perch pads are still listed in direct connection and less than $20.00

Thank You Carlton, I will call them.
 I do not need the pads between the leaves as they were replaced several years ago.  
There are pads which go between the springs and the axles which I need and do not see on their site, but they will surely know.

Hi Mike,
It has been about 2 years ago for me but I was pleased with the rebuild pads for my H springs I bought from Springs n Things.  The pads are hard plastic and all the knobs that fit the holes in the spring leafs fit correctly and tightly.  I forgot the cost but I thought it was very reasonable.  I think I also talked to them on the phone and they were helpful.
I had my springs all apart and changed the bands and the bushings too.
