    I just had a good friend give me a pair of leaf springs marked 35 to 48. He gave them to me as I plan on putting parallel leaves on my 35 coupe. But I have none of the frame mounting brackets to install the springs. If I knew who made them I might know where to go for the kit. One end has a bushing, the other does not, and the only markings I can find is on the Spring clamps it says Betts.
    Now the Internet tells me Betts is a spring manufacturer[​IMG], but I’m sure these were part of someone’s kit. They also have anti-squeak pads built-in. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Measure the springs.
    If the eye to eye measurement is a nominal 48" and the dimension from the bushed end to the center bolt is a nominal 24", with the width at 2-1/2" , Then a Chassis Engineering or a TCI mounting kit would work.
    The bushed end goes forward.

    47-1/4 is what I get. Thanks 42Merc!
    Looks like that is what I have, a little over 24” to center.

    If the other dimensions are close, the mentioned kits will work.
    I believe the spring manufacturers use broken yardsticks for measuring.
    My TCI springs measured about that. Plus the center bolts varied a 1/4" .
