leaf springs


Hi all, I am wondering if 5 leaf 195 load rate leaf springs would be too stiff for a 66 coupe used for normal road driving. Thanks in advance. Jim

"Too stiff" is very subjective and it's difficult to give a "yes" or "no" answer.  If you frequently have rear seat passengers and/or enjoy a firm ride you will probably like them.

Thanks for your reply. Rarely carry rear seat passengers. I am a little concerned  going from 85/110    ( not sure which is fitted as there are no marking ) to 195. The roads i would use alot  would not be smooth like a highway. 

Just to add I am trying to improve road holding and handling. Any comments.

I think you've answered your own question :-).  You should be fine with the stock-type springs.
