Hypercoil has a very nice looking composite/fiberglass leaf spring. If I was running a leaf car, I'd sure look at them.

I didn't really look at the hypercoil leafs, but I thought they were in the 225/250 lbs range, which would lead me to believe they were not monoleaf/coilover design.

I've got a catalog at home, I'll look tonight and let you know.

I also see in your first post that you race at Oakshade. Do you know a good friend of mine, Brad Kendall?

Stonewall, I finally dug up my catalog. They show both Chrysler and Chevy leafs. The Chevy ones are 150/175/200/225/250 rates. $270 each, so they ain't exactly cheap...

Brand Kendall races the 42 white/red sportsman.

Jack up the rear of the car with the frame or rear bumper, with the rear end hanging, put something in between rear end housing and frame to keep the weight off of the rear suspension.
