Mopar anti-rattle spring

I seem to have misplaced the "anti-rattle" springs that attach to one end of the "strut" (Mopar's nomenclature) for my 1968 B-body 10" rear brakes. As I recall, it was a lightweight spring. The repair manual shows it as an "anti-rattle" spring, but I cannot find a part number anywhere. I've done quite a bit of searching, but I can't seem to find any more information on it. I've visited the hardware store, trying to find a suitable replacement, but that hasn't worked out either. Does anyone have any knowledge of this elusive part? A part number, a source to purchase from, or anyone have two they would be willing to part with? Thanks.

spring

jessebelle here, i probably have a spring or 2, but i'm unaware of where they are located in the set-up. i removed the rear drum brakes on my 65 "B" body, went to 4 wheel discs, but i kept all of the bones, plus a bucket full of other mopar brake parts too. do you have any dimensions on the spring, o.o, lenght, also length of the hooks on each end ? i'll check my motor manual on the parts breakdown of the drum brakes. should you want to change over to rear discs, let me know, i have a list of parts that are available to do it, and inexpensive, not like buying the stuff from mopar, and easy too. i'm in sayre, pa., (18840) where are you?

Jessebelle,
Thank you for your reply. I've since been able to obtain the springs, with the help of a good counter guy (and an old paper catalog) at my local NAPA. However, my problems aren't over yet. When I disassembled this rear, about 2 years ago, I know I placed all the miscellaneous little parts in a baggie, and put them right where I would be able to find them when I needed them....yeah, right. I've now discovered that the "anchor plate"...the kinda diamond shaped piece (in the aforementioned baggie) that fits over the anchor pin at the top of the backing plate after the brake shoes are in place is nowhere to be found. I called my local NAPA, and unbelievably, they can't help me out. So if you have a pair of those "anchor plates" for Mopar 10" brakes, let me know. That's all I need to reassemble this rear, and get the Plymouth back on it's own four feet. Thank you very much. And I'm located in Berwick, PA.

You should really do this through a "PM" so not just anyone can have your info. JMO

"PM" = Private message.

Just trying to help that's all.
