both really. most spindles on the market today accept coil overs and do not have an arm or bracket on the bottom of the spindle where you can attach a transverse leaf spring.

This 1948 technology so its getting harder to find.

liek this old ferrari...you can see the leaf spring in the pic running transversely and connecting to the spindle. is there a modern version of this set up?

I was thinking of a beam axle, not independent suspension. What does the late model 'Vette use in front? They use a fiberglas transverse spring in the rear. Can't think of any modern car that uses that setup but it would be fairly easy (easy for me to say!) to adapt that setup to a Mustang II X-member. Would definitely require expert fabrication skills but could be done.
