24 Roadster front spring lengths

Post by BasketCase24 » Sun Apr 07, 2019 4:54 pm

I am rebuilding “the ends” of The Basket Case, found that front end has been, hmm, “customized”! Wondering What is the proper length of each of the individual leaf springs? I believe 7 is the correct number, looking for length/configuration, how many leafs within clips?
