Been away for a while, but I am finally getting back on my c3 project. I have their dual mount rear spring setup but it’s a little too light for my liking. I have their semi coliovers with boxed upper arms with shortened 600 lb springs mounted up front and I’m looking for something to compliment that. Does anyone out there have a 360/420 composite spring they’d be willing to part with? Is there a source for new composite springs without the “wings?” I am also running van steel offset T/As. Thanks in advance!

Have you considered the SharkBite rear suspension? Cantilever would surely compliment what you got up front. I setup a SharkBite suspension with the van steel offset trailing arms wilwood brakes and even the van steel rear sway bar. It all came together nicely. It was for a wild big block car and there are lots of pictures of its setup here: https://www.digitalcorvettes.com/forums/showthread.php?t=242889

Doesn't Van steel make an offset trailing arm with a coil over mount to eliminate the spring? If so maybe you can buy the bracket and have it welded to your trailing arms.

Van Steel Coilover

Van Steel does make an excellent offset coil-over trailing arm. I have them on my 1976 now with QA1 shocks.

Maddogs15, did you ever get a 420 leaf spring ? I know this thread is a year old.
