Eaton Detroit Springs 1963 to 1982 Corvette

1963 to 1982 Corvette


There are many aftermarket Corvette Leaf Springs availalble, but only EATON Detroit Spring offers springs that are nearly 100% correct.

We only use SAE5160 High Alloy Spring Steel in the manufacturing of all our Corvette Leaf Springs. But due to the reduction of available steel sizes we have to make a few slight changes. The thickness's of each leaf have been adjusted to sizes the steel mills now produce. Way back when, the mills would produce quantities as low as 5 tons of a size. Today over 20 tons of a size is the bare minimum of a size they will produce. And that is a lot of Corvette springs.

While the overall thickness of the spring have slightly increased, the fit, feel, function and performance of the springs are unchanged. The free arch have been lowered a bit from the factory specs in order to maintain stock ride height.

So you can apply the finish of your choice, our Corvette Leaf Springs come bare metal

Each spring includes full length liners between the leaves

Best of all, the end of the leaves are as close to OE as possible
