1964 Ford Galaxy 500 - Front and Rear Suspension - HELP!

I need to know of a parts dealer (anywhere in the world) that sells front and/or rear suspension parts for a 1964 Ford Galaxy 500. Mainly coils and leaf springs. I appreciate your time. Thanks.

Joe

Find a TRW parts dist. and see if you can get their #
Or you may try Dearborn Classics (not sure of that name)
Any Ford restoration supplier should be able to help.
If possible --count coils in the front and get the diameter of the spring wire, this will help in getting the correct spring for the car.

I bought 2 sets of front coils--the first set I ordered would not hold the car up,
A Chevrolet supplier told me to count and measure my old ones-
I think there are 5 different sets for my 59

These people are the OEM supplier to FORD and have the correct springs for your car. They can even give you sets to raise/lower the trim height in a correct/safe manner.

Most everything thing else is either one-fits-all or some cheap off-shore crap.

I completely rebuilt the front end of my '63 Galaxie 500XL three years ago with parts from http://www.kanter.com/ . I got a complete front end rebuild kit from them and was very satisfied.

Ya but they ain't cheap by any stretch of the imagination.

They wanted $ 550 for a pair of stock leaf springs for my 63 Fairlane, 12 years ago.......

Springs

I don't know if you considered it,but check the yellow pages a lot of local shops recondition springs and can probably cut you a better deal.Also think about the shipping costs you can save.
