i would think it would be worth the time to slide that assembly under the car and do some measuring to see just how everything would fit..Then make a choice as to use those springs or not..

Seems to me that the Granada and the 38 are fairly close to the same weight of car so the spring rate should be in the ballpark..

Thsi is one of those deals where we measure a lot before we weld..Making sure that to the best of our ability the rear end is installed straight and centered..

Take Care
I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
