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.
