My son and I are restoring a 62 Ranchero. It's had multiple owners and lots of odd things done to it over the years. We need new leaf springs. We ordered a set from MacAuto and though they claim they are for a 62 Ranchero they are about 5 inches too short. WHen installed, the rear shackle it almost parallel with the farm rail and when under load I am certain they will bang into the frame rails (see below). One of the previous owner tried to rake the car and had huge drop shackle and had even reversed the rear hanger so when MacAuto told me those were not original and started to believe them - until we installed their springs! The original spring in the car measures about 55 inches with 24" from front eye to pin. These seem to be the right size. The after-market ones are 50" total and 22" from front eye to pin. So, are the springs that were in the car correct? And if so, where might we get a new pair. MacAuto clearly does not carry the correct part. I checked Stengel Brothers and their Ranchero springs appear to match the MacAuto ones. Very odd. Several good springs shops in the Phoenix area so I suppose we could have our originals rebuilt, but not sure if they can be rescued. Any thoughts and advice would be appreciated.
