There are many reasons to replace the rear leaf spring on your C2 or C3 Corvette, which by now may have broken leaves or is simply fatigued. The most obvious symptoms of a rear leaf spring needing replacement are the ride height is too low and the car's handling is poor.
Beyond symptoms, a weakened rear leaf spring harms the drivetrain by forcing the parts to run at an incorrect angle. This puts the U-joints in a tighter bind position, pushes the differential yokes into the pinion shaft, often requiring their replacement and places unnecessary wear on the differential clutch pack and the ring & pinion.
Replacing the rear leaf spring will restore lost ride height and correct the myriad of problems associated with sagging, worn-out springs.
This 9-leaf rear spring meets or exceeds factory specifications. It is heat-treated, as was the original, painted with black enamel and has rubber/vinyl liners to assure smooth, quiet operation.
