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."

ESPO Springs n Things

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.

<image001.jpg> Can anyone recommend a source for new spring leaf pads for a 300H?
