Reverse Eye Leaf Spring

Ordered my leaf spring from www.speedwaymotors.com . Got it in the other day with the shackles. Here are some pictures.


Also cut some foam so I could figure out what size wheel to run in the rear of the car. The small foam cut out is a 275 30 20. The larger one is 275 55 20. I’m going to end up going with the 275 55 20 I think the larger tire will look much better and also have a larger white wall.

Tire Size: 275 30 20


Tire Size: 275 55 20



That’s all I got for this week. This weekend its time to weld some brackets and apply some bondo!


  1. I think I would like a tire size in between the two you have here. But, what do I know, you know?

  2. Yeah maybe something like a 275 40 20 instead of the 275 55 20. I'm going to buy a used tire from the local big o tires and have it mounted that should give me a better idea of how it will look.

    ps Thanks for the feedback Uncle Chris!
