Best source for replacement front springs?

Postby MFE » Thu Jan 06, 2022 11:03 pm

My '69 Continental Sedan sat for an indeterminate amount of time before it was somewhat restored and then flipped into my hands. It has a lean to the right, and IMO the specific source is the right front. I'd like to replace the front springs but I don't know where to source them. I don't want lowering springs, just factory replacements. Sources? Thanks!

Dunno about “best”, but I got a new set for my ‘67 sedan from ESPO Springs and Things. They seemed to be the most reasonably priced. Top and bottom isolators I got from Lincoln Land.

Was the front suspension worked on before you got it? If yes and they didn't put weight on the wheels before tightening it up, that might cause the lean.

. I don't know, but I highly doubt it.
