LEAF SPRINGS FOR MY 1978 CRUISIN WAGON / 77 or 78 grill shell
« on: December 06, 2012, 05:49:02 PM »
I need to know if anyone could tell me were i can get some new leaf springs for my wagon.Theres some on Ebay for 85.00 Bucks a piece but im guessing there for a runabout seems like a great deal but unsure as to if they will fit my wagon...are the wagons and coupes  different ?.Also does anyone have a good used grill shell laying around that they would like to sell for a 77-78...Thanks in advance,Kenny

We got leaf springs for Janets '76 wagon from St. Louis spring their web site is the same name .com. I can't remember how much they were for the set so you could look them up and call. Only got them a few years ago, maybe 4, but they're still not sagging or anything and the fit was perfect. Good people to work with. That's about all I can tell you about them, hope it helps.
worry does not empty tomorrow of it's troubles, it emptys today of it's strength!

Yeah, the Ebay ones aren't for wagons. I'm about to order some Landrum springs for my Runabout so I know the length of all the Ebay ones are sedan/Runabout

'80 hatch(Restoring to be my son's 1st car)~Callisto
'71 half hatch (bucket list Pinto)~Ghost

There is a difference in length from sedans/Runabouts from wagon springs.I bought landrum springs for mine 3 years ago.
