47 - 54 Chevy Leaf Springs?

Anyone out there replaced the leaf springs on their 47 - 54 AD Chevrolet Truck? I'm looking for replacements with stock specifications; no lowering, no wider springs. The usual Chevy restoration catalogs sell them, but I'm sure a little hunting could find a superior spring for a similar price. Anyone have any links or recommendations? Thanks

From Eaton: Front springs are $369.00 a pair and rear springs are $399.00 a pair plus shipping

Sounds like a fair price. Thank you. In the interest of shopping around, does anyone have any info on Posies springs, or any other shop I should be aware of?
