    I need rear leafsprings for my 1950 Chevy 3100. I've been looking up new kits and also junkyard solutions.

    I have not come across a belair to measure myself but I have seen pictures and I'm curious if I can use the rear springs and install them on a chevy 3100. Both are mounted under frame right? I ask because I know where to get some bel air springs and my spring eyes are to elogolated to use.

    Has this been done anywhere?
    Something similar been done?
    Any advice you guys got?
