Grab A Track is pretty good. Mustangs Plus carries pretty good stuff.
One change from original on mine is conversion to poly
bushings/insulators, etc. The flex/distortion a lot less than original
rubber, don't deteriorate the way rubber does with exposure to
You might also look at the PST(Performance Suspension Technologies)
kit, though it may be a bit pricey. www.pst.com
. I like what they
have, and have used the kit for a 66 Fastback.
I'll be adding sub frame connectors to stiffen the chassis more.
Can't tell ya a thing about rear leafs.
I'm running 225/50Z16 on 16x8" Vintage 40 rims front and rear (some
run larger rears) and it was a simple bolt on. And that's with a
negative wedge kit which lowered the front by 1.75". No problems I can
see. Is your backspace correct?
You should be able to see and count the bolts.
