add a leaf

WE have 36 an 37 Pontiac's. I have never had the 37 project up on the hoist. the 36 has springs that are narrower and more leaves than the camaro parts on the racks. some 4 X4 forums tell what bone yard springs will swap. I reversed the arch (reversed eyes) in my Model T front main leaf using a Hf tubing bender. chalk the shape then gradually work along the spring enough times. I don't know id the camaro springs would fit thru a HF tubing roller to do it faster. The 36 is stock straight 8, the 37 had a SBC and chevy pickup rear with the Pontiac wheel lug pattern
