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
Adding a leaf along with the sliders may be the answer.
Next question where does one get a single leaf to add, a pair of junkyard to disassemble?
