1956 Buick Coil Springs

I have a 1956 Century that I pulled off a farm couple weekends ago. In getting off the ground and some tires that hold air I have discovered that I am missing a Rear coil spring. Kanters I think has them put they are little pricey. What donor car from the bone yard could I use that would have comparable springs? A big Cadillac or something? Also were could I find the Spec. on these and other springs.

Thanks!

Wish I could help

Man, I love '56 Buicks. I wish I could help you, but I don't know enough about those. Post some pics of your progress sometime though...

Try www.espo.com They sell all types of coil springs Also you can check with Coil Spring Specialist

1-785-437-2025 You probably need to replace both springs as a new one on one side and a old one on the other is a bad idea. The old spring has probably fatigued some and your ride height would not be even and the handleing would not be good.

if it's anything like my '60 LeSabre than just about any gm fullsizer will work. My rear ones came out of a '88 Olds 98
