    Have a friend with a 65 Coronet 500 in need of leaf springs. I have springs from both a 69 and 70 Road Runner. Will they interchange/fit?

    Thanks,
    David

    I suggest you double check, but I believe they will interchange. You could check aftermarket spring manufacturers to see if the part numbers are the same OR just run a tape measure along the length of the leaves (maybe tape them in spots to help you follow the arch)?

    I suggest you measure the front segment because there is overlap in 1965.

    Interesting! Sounds like they may fit. Guess we'll need to measure. Thanks!
