Rear ends

Take a look at S-10s Ford mustangs, granadas..some of the small or intermediate size cars..I know it is out there because we did that on a 48 Ford and one was found that the leaf springs matched up and it was just a matter of welding on the spring brackets..but right now I cannot remember just what the rear and springs come from..

There is hope

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