Rear Springs replacement kit complete with U-bolts and shims

$ 274.95

Do you have sagging, rusty, broken or fanned-out rear leaf springs on your Bugeye? Here's a kit to solve that problem.

The original 15-leaf springs for the rear of a Bugeye are no longer available but we have a nice ten-leaf replacement that fits the car quite well. The only issue is that these new springs will lift the back of your Bugeye an inch or so higher than the stock leaf springs.  

Our solution is to provide lowering wedges you'll slide under the spring (upon installation of the spring into the spring box) to get the car level again. The kit also comes with longer custom u-bolts we make to accommodate the lowering wedges. 5º shims should do the trick, but opt for 6º if your car is really riding high in the rear. 

We have used this fix on many of the 200+ Bugeye's that have come through out shop. This is a kit complete with lowering wedges, extended u-bolts and new springs. Each  spring comes with a new rubber bushing installed in the rear eyelet.

NOTE: Some owners like to remove leaves from their springs as an alternative method to lower the back of their car. We do not recommend doing this, as it dramatically alters the rear ride-quality of the car.  It's fine for a race car, but very unpleasant on the street. Every car to come through our shop with fewer than ten leaves has ended up with this new spring kit and lowering wedges.
