David’s 1961, Triumph, TR3A
I brought my TR3A home on a trailer completely dissembled. It was a failed restoration project. Working from December 2015 to January 2019 I got it back on the road. Doing all the work myself including painting. Mike Eaton made me a pair of rear leaf springs and they have worked out great. Love driving my TR3A.

William’s 1963 Studebaker Avanti
Bought sight unseen after a no sale on eBay, my Avanti is - as I call it - a maintained original. Yes, it's a 20-footer and I think it's a great ride. R4314 is an R1, meaning it's a naturally aspirated Studebaker 289-4v (the R2 motor was Supercharged). Built with a rare 3-speed tyranny, a/c and p/s and power brakes, it only goes to car shows where it's driven; no Trailer Queen this one.
Dwayne’s 1966 Chevy II SS Nova
1966 Baby Blue I’m the 3rd registered owner of this Marina Blue 1966 Chevy II SS Nova, powered by a 327/350hp engine and controlled through the shifting of a smooth 4 speed Muncie transmission. This Chevy II has been a labor of love from bumper to bumper where every nut and bolt has been replaced. The newly installed Eaton 3 leaf spring (stock fit) gives this Chevy Duce that smooth and sleek stance appearance that most of us remembered for. When cruising through the narrow curvy roads of East Tennessee, it continues to hold that sleek stylish stance that captures the eyes and “thumbs up” gestures from those who remember and appreciated the 1960’s muscle car era.
Eddie’s 1950 Cadillac Coupe DeVille Series 62
1950 Cadillac Coupe DeVille Series 62. Eaton 2” lowering coil springs in the front and new shackle bushings and Duich lowering blocks in the rear

Everything is stock, engine 292, fordomatic trans and rear end. Had to lower the front it sat too high with a set of your lowering coil springs 1 1/2 drop. Now it sits right,rides better and I think looks perfect!
Sam’s 1964 Ford Fairlane
I always wanted a ThunderBolt but couldn't afford one so I created my own wannabe look alike. I could not get enough front end travel with the old stock V-8 springs, so I purchased new 6-cyl coil springs from Eaton Detroit Spring, got the travel I needed, and the rest is history.

1967 Mustang Fastback GT S Code. Eaton Detroit +1”, improved handling rear leaf springs.
Alan’s 1968 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible
This was originally a Tripoli Turquoise Camaro convertible that had a really bad red color paint job over the original color. It had a 327, 2bbl, with a 2 speed Powerglide transmission. Very low horsepower - rated at 210, but after the years, probably not even close. I wanted something that was more fun to drive and show at the car shows. I put in a 355 (350 bored 0.40 over) engine from Blueprint Engines, with about 400 horsepower and married it up with a 4L60e 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission. Also converted the 3.08 highway gears to 3.55 posi-trac. I also made this an SS clone, so I put a new SS hood on, rear spoiler, and all the SS badging. Had it painted in 2020 and am very pleased with the results. Also had to put some Eaton Detroit multi-leaf springs on the back and new stiffer coil springs on the front, to help with the handling and new power. It previously had single leaf springs in the back. The guys at Eaton were very helpful when I was making my choice. Needless to say the car is fun to drive and gets "thumbs-up's" from people all the time. I've won several awards this summer at car shows too, which is always welcomed validation. I drive it as much as possible during the summer.
Paul’s 1964 Ford Fairlane sedan
1964 Super Stock tribute. Eaton Detroit front springs, SBF, C4 auto, factory suspension, '64 econoline buckets, patina paint with matching lettering. Teardrop glass hood, factory glass. 4" Cragar SS wheels on the front & 9" steelies on the rear. Just a good looker & driver.

With the exception of the Engine, Transmission & Rear, the car is all original, down to the front bench seat, speedometer & gauges, (except for old school Sun Super 10,000 Tach & S.W. Temp & Oil Gauges added), original radio & clock too. It's just an Old School Hot Rod, just like we built them in the 1960's with what we could find !! It doesn't have the ride or have the crazy HP like the modern 2010 plus mussel cars, but it's still a lot of fun for this 70 year old man !!
Leland’s 2005 Ford Crown Victoria PI
Eaton 1.5 inch lowering springs,KYB Struts/Shocks,2006-2009 Mustang 18" wheels with Cooper Zeon RS3-G1 245/55/18. Suspension has been completely rebuilt. Has Stainless Works Long Tube Headers with complete Stainless Works Cat Back Exhaust.

One of only 1864 made, pushing close to 500 HP. Just a blast to drive and all the bells and whistles to boot.
Skateboard Mark’s 75 ford Ranchero 500
I didn't know what I was getting into when I bought this abomination. It's 429 has better specs than a Super Cobra Jet, and yet it is EVIL. IT EATS CHILDREN! Perhaps it is the Frankenstein array of parts from other brands, other Ford models of different years, Chrysler, Chevy, and even Harley-Davidson share a home under the hood. But one of the first things I did was to put stiffer and lowered front springs under that big block, so now when she runs 'em over, I barely notice.

Joe’s 1969 Pontiac Firebird
Christian’s 1956 Chevy Truck 3200
This was an original 1956 newspaper delivery truck from the Oakland Tribune that was given to my grandfather as a bonus in 1958. My father and his brothers all drove it in high school, as I did. After a frame up resto in 1985 and several 235 engines, I finally got it back on the road after 27 years of storage with a 350 and four on the floor. After trying several sets of front mustang 2 springs for the IFS fat-man kit, I ordered a set of springs from Eaton. The Eaton springs were perfect, whereas the other springs were cut too low. Thank you Eaton springs, the springs were perfect on the first try!!!
Jack’s Ford Falcon
Lets, start out with where the Falcon is on the numbers game:According to HAGERTY insurance, the 1967 Ford Falcon Sport Coupe with a 289 and bucket seats(a rare option) would bring 18,000,to 21,000 in Number 2 condition..I, will say my car is a high 2. A, 2 car, should be able out of the box, to win awards in local shows, magazine potential, show little wear, paint in excellent to very good condition. From the start the car was that way..I'm, just the 3nd owner of the car, the 2nd owner only had it 3 weeks ,and had a very expensive SONNY LEONARD pro mod engine show up ,and needed the money to pay for it. The car was shipped cross country in a covered trailer...the paint was out of this world, the full original interior was just unreal...chrome etc..I bought the car sight unseen...but had hundreds of pictures sent to me for inspection. I bought it based on his wife's statement...the original owner told them, "DONT GET OUR BABY WET" we never got it wet when we owned it. I, screwed up and got caught in a rain storm...the wipers failed...I,never fixed them as a reason not to get it wet either. There is now major mods to the car from front to back...the 289 radiator, is still there ,but with the support of a water pump from AUSTRAILA..it is able to super cool this car sitting in front of a PAXTON SUPERCHARGED, DSS RACING 410 CI.SBF...Pushing near 500 RWHP...467 LBS of torque at 5800 RPMS (ALL MONEY CLAIMS SUPPORTED BY RECIEPTS) 12, 846.00 it was a turn key carb engine ,which I later bought the supercharger,got COMP CAMS ..to custom grind a blower cam. New Hooker headers ,a 1000.00 spent on a AEROMOTIVE FUEL system ...pump, filter, regulator. from the Hookers back...are 40 MUFFLERS to chrome tips. Oh yeah....1200.00 in a front end rebuild....WILWOOD BRAKES.. The car has been 100 percent rewired by a real pro...a RON FRANCIS wire harness,was installed. A .NEW TCI 'STREET FIGHTER C6,and convertor went in with the new engine. GOD. I must be forgetting something...just over 78, 000 original miles...at leas 35 show awards ranging from BEST FALCON BEST FORD BEST MUSCLE CAR....RUNNER UP IN CLASS ..in the PORTLAND ROADSTER SHOW..2006 ISSUE OF LEGENDARY FORD MAGAZINE...cover and feature story. Last, this year 10,000 dollars in parts and labor to install a complete ART MORRISON 4 LINK- COIL OVER SHOCK STRANGE ENG.FORD 9 INCH WITH 35 SPLINE AXLES ,WILWORD REAR BRAKES. It will kill me to sell it...but a serious health issue has mandated it.

Kathleen’s 1963 Mercury Meteor
I was cruising Kijiji ads for a classic car, when I came across one for a 1963 Mercury Meteor, 4 door, small block V8. The body was near mint, according to the ad, and that’s hard to find. The car was posted by a fellow in Calgary, who bought it from a friend in Southern BC, for his son, who later decided he wanted something else. My husband and I contacted him and set up a date that we could drive down from Edmonton to look at it - that was this past April 1st. It truly was a great find, exactly what was advertised. I bought it, and we trailed it home 2 weeks later. Being an out of province vehicle, it had to be inspected-no problem, it’s a great vehicle right? We took it to a local auto shop to have it inspected and it didn’t pass. The leaf springs had to be replaced. Well, Edmonton has lots of business that do springs but we soon found out non of them could manufacture ones for the 63! Either I find springs or I bought myself a beautiful lawn ornament. Stressed to the max I turned to a google search, and thank god “EATON Detroit” came up. With nothing to loose I phoned and and Mike answered. We chatted briefly and to my instant relief, my problem was solved. What a great guy, personable, professional and knowledgeable. We had struck a deal, a price and a timeframe for delivery. We received email updates along the manufacturing process, which to me exceeded any expectations. The leaf springs arrived ahead of the initial date given and I was able to have them installed promptly. Thank you Mike, thank you EATON Detroit Spring Inc., and kudos to my husband Clarence, and our awesome mechanic friend Ken Tomkins, for installing springs & getting this car on the road. There is a significant difference in the ride - greatly improved! I highly recommend this company and have bragged it up to many, as one should do with such a great outcome. I have put some miles on the car now, and the car is riding so smoothly. Those leaf springs are working wonderfully. I am truly satisfied with the work that your company did for me.

Giorgio’s 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado
I got this car in 1968 and drove it since. After a change of the cylinder head after 150'00 km, the engine had a discontinued acceleration. It took me about 2 years of checks and adjustments until I found a team of mechanics who wanted to find out where the trouble was, on free weekend work. They found out by comparing the numbers, that there was a wrong carburetor mounted (mistakenly exchanged with a similar model by the cylinder head repair). After mounting a new carburetor, the car ran well again. The front brakes have been modified to disc brakes because the heavy car did not beak enough. Several times the body has been repaired from rust. Now I have a stainless steel exhaust. As a veteran, I use the car only on nice days.

Rear leaf springs replaced after 80 years. Eaton moved the axle pin 2” aft to center the rear in the fender openings. I have owned this “high school” car since 1959. Always garaged, and is rust free. Converted to a V8 in 1961. Many transmissions, engines, and rear ends later, it now is a stock 350/350 with vintage air. The car still retains the stock suspension and steering, and drives surprisingly well.

I bought this about 5 years ago and have been doing various restorations & modifications to it.

Since then I've put in a 400 HP Blueprint 350 4-bolt main engine with Edelbrock performer series intake and 600 cfm carb, all hooked to a 4L60e 4-speed overdrive automatic transmission. I've completely rebuilt the front end and used Eaton Detroit Springs for my new multi-leaf springs in the rear. I just got it painted and only a couple next steps. I'm going to add a posi rear end with 3:42 gears, as it's still got the original 3:08 setup.

steve’s 1970,plymouth,road runner
I was working at a gas station back in 1977 and saw this burnt orange road runner come in.
The owner was complaining that it used to much gas,and didn't run good at all.
The car was offered to me for $1500.00 (a lot of money for a used car in 1977)
But i fell in love with the color and the look especially with those factory road wheel , Just had to have it.
It turns out the car was a 440 six pack,four speed,dana rear factory original.
I fixed every thing that was wrong with it ,nothing modified and it would beat most every car i raced.
Fast forward to 2001 I found another 70 burnt orange road runner and transformed it myself into a factory Hemi car that i had always dreamed of owning.

It has DeLoreans OHC-6 Sprint engine, a 4 spd and most of the available options plus AC which I added during the 1993 rebuilt. Over the last 3 years the car has undergone a complete mechanical and body restoration which included replacing the suspension. When I spoke to Eaton I described the engine and options including the ride and handling package and the springs that Eaton supplied were perfect. The car set at the correct height and it was level.
Ron’s 1969 Dodge Super Bee
Long story short? Bought in 1995 for $6500.00 in great shape but in need of a restoration. Knowing it would be going down for a full restore soon.

Then spent many many hours on it to make it look like it does now. Not for everyone? but,,,,, I built it for ME.

Art’s 1959 Plymouth Sport Fury Hdtp
The car has been restored to original condition. It has been estimated that less than 100 Sport Fury hardtops and convertibles (restored to original condition) exist today. The styling of this Plymouth by Virgil Exner with his "Forward Look" design was so popular by the buying public that it put Chrysler in the #3 sales position of the "Big Three" car companies back in the 50's and 60's. The height as manufactured from the ground to the roof top is only 58" high. It has a very reliable pushbutton transmission and torsion bar front suspension. It was the last year for body-on-frame construction.

Rattle can white primered it and drove it like that for 5 yrs. Did a ground up restoration in 2013 and have had it on the road since that was completed in 2016. 38k miles showed on the clock when I got it and it now says 61k. Too much fun not to enjoy and to let others enjoy her as well

Victoria’s 1968 Ford Mustang
We spent two years restoring our pony. It turns out the final - and best - upgrade we did to this car was to stop at the NPD booth during their Mustang Rally and speak with a gentleman about the springs for our car. Turns out, we spoke with the owner of the company who very graciously advised us to call the company in the morning and speak with Kim. Kim was a delight - very helpful and knowledgeable. She assisted us in ordering the correct ride height for our car. We absolutely love the results! The car is responsive, corners like it's on rails, and no longer bottoms out over a railroad track. Thank you, Eaton Springs! Our car is better than ever!
Gary’s 1956 Ford Mainline
Just wanna say thank you for your custom front springs on my 1956 ford mainline, with a 427 ford upfront, it was way too low, now it sits perfect and transfers weight to the back for better traction

Nick’s 1929 Rolls Royce, Boat Tail Roadster
This car was a barn find in New York State, and had been stripped of engine, trans and axles for the war effort. Since parts are extremely rare, a resto mod had to be done to get back on the road. Chevy 350, TH350 trans, Mustang II front axle are some of the parts that were used. Eaton custom made the front springs, and they work great !!
Kelly’s 1944 Dodge DD1S16 xCanadian Military
The front springs were not original, but I was happy to learn about Eaton Detroit Spring. I bought replacement front leaf springs, shackles, and pins, from Eaton Detroit back in June of 2020.
I've been wearing a smile since. Every cruise downtown, to the recycling center, or to the hardware store is a joy driving this old truck, finally with good spring in her step.
Rob’s 1970, Ford Mustang Boss 302
Owned since 1978, Bought it for $450.00 with no motor or tranny and it already had rust holes in the rear quarters. Hauled it home in my dads grain truck. Rebuilt with salvage yard 351 Cleveland and top loader tranny. Daily driver from spring of 79 until 1985. In hibernation until 2012 when Ford had a big display at the L A Autoshow including a 2012 Boss 302 running on a dyno in the exhibition hall. If that doesn’t get your juices flowing to go home and get your old Boss out of the barn you aren’t a true car guy. I spent a year interviewing resto/body shops. Spent a summer stripping off anything I could unbolt except the suspension/wheels/tires. Dropped off at the resto shop in 2015. Final assembly started with the first parts order on News Year's weekend 2020. First drive was August 2020. All in all a pretty nice way to spend a pandemic/lockdown.

Ebay purchase, March 12, 2007. We found the performance aged less gracefully than the styling. So, we updated it to quicken response without arousing suspicion: 462ci FE, AOD, 3.50:1 Eaton Truetrac in the 9", Front Disc Brakes, Rack & Pinion Steering, Leather Seat, etc. The exterior just got a wax job. We drive the wheels off it!
Alan’s 1968 Chevy Camaro Convertible SS Tribute
Originally this was a stock 327, 2 bbl, Powerglide, with a 3:08 rear-end. I wanted a bit more muscle and to turn this into something much more to look at. Therefore I went with a 350 ci Blueprint engine, bored 0.40"; 400 hp; 4L60e transmission; 600 cfm Edlebrock Performer carb and Performer intake; power front disc brakes; champion 3 core radiator; Patriot mid-length headers; and finished it off with a March serpentine belt system.

So far I’ve completed body work, paint, transmission and differential rebuilds, electrical, interior/top, and engine refresh. Currently finishing up the suspension work. OEM mono-leafs were worn out and car sagged to the point wheels were scrubbing inner wells. A new set of Eaton 4-leafs and she’s riding high again! And I got my new shocks from Eaton as well.

The classic Mustang is popular and many people own them. My story is simple. This car was my dad's . 1966 Mustang. He bought it in 1969 from a work friend. He used it for work and when retired in Florida we used it going to the beach etc. My dad passed too early (1992). I brought the car back and 7 years ago had it restored. The person who restored it was going through a depression and he said the work helped him cope. We remain friends to this day. Nothing but good came from this car. A memory of dad and a friendship with the guy who restored the car to this day!

WILLIAM’s 1963 Studebaker Avanti
We're the second-family owners of our Avanti. Upon the original owner's passing, we had the good fortune to buy our Avanti - sight unseen - from his daughter who lived in Atlanta, GA. She had an Avanti II and preferred its ride and handling. Bought at 88,600 original miles, the car now sports 108,000 miles. Wearing its original Avanti Turquoise paint, R4314 was built with a T86 3-speed transmission and is powered by its naturally aspirated Studebaker 289-4V Studebaker motor, often designated as an R1. I run American Classic P205/75R radial tires and OE wheel covers. The Eaton rear springs assist in maintaining its originality.

It won Best in Class at Amelia Island Concours (Pre-war Sports Class) among many other AACA and concours awards, in addition to being competitively driven. With a straight 6 OHC, twin carb, 11:1 compression, the sound at 5,500 RPM always brings a smile.

David’s 1953 DeSoto Firedome
Found this a little over two years ago. Interior has been redone. One repaint @ 1990, or so I was told. 276 Hemi engine is all original and this car still has the factory cloth covered wiring. It's not perfect by any means, but as you can see it's a pretty nice cruiser. Replaced both rear springs thanks to your company.

Rick’s 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air
It's an old school 1950's/60's Hot Rod. It's basically an all original car as far as keeping the front bench seat (reupholstered interior in saddle tan leather & suede), original dash & gauges, except for an old school 8 grand Sun Super Tach mounted on the steering column, stock frame, a-arms, shocks & stance. It is a true C code Bel Air. The drive train has been changed from a 265 ci V-8 to a Chevy 383 stroker/425 hp with coated long tube headers (nothing crazy, streetable), 1970 Chevelle 12 bolt, 355 posi rear & Muncie M-21 four speed & old school Lakewood Traction Bars. Repainted to original 612 paint code (Regal Turquoise & India Ivory) in 2010. Old school 7" X 15" chrome 5 spoke Cragars, with front Wilwood disc brake calipers & rotors.
Just got done replacing the original 66 year old 4 leaf leaf springs (a lot of fun breaking then free after 66 years) with new 4 leaf Detroit Spring leaf springs, that has it sitting & riding GREAT again.

Chuck’s 33 Essex Terraplane
Not mine but a car that I worked on for the owner. You provided the original specifications and manufactured new rear springs which made my job much easier. They fit and performed perfectly.
Homebuilt state of the Art built Chassis 383 stroker dynode out at 550 hp. Tci 700 R trans Ford 9 inch 389 gear. Eaton Springs what a 3 inch drop 4 inch air ride shocks makes the set up almost like a four link. Add it 3 inches to the rear fenders to accommodate the 14 inch tires. Still working on the rest of the body modifications before sending it to paintAnd interior, but I love driving it.
Phil’s 1967 Chevy Camaro
I have owned my car for 39 years! Over the years I have made many upgrades. 350 four bolt, MSD ignition, BeCool radiator, 4 wheel disc brakes, I just upgraded to power steering. It has a custom paint job and custom interior. Dakota Digital Gauges too. A couple of years ago I decided new coil springs were needed. I am very happy with the improvements they made.
James’s 1963 Lincoln continental
Over 7 years I built this car myself and your springs finished it off with the perfect stance.
Art’s 1964 Ford Galaxie 500XL Convertible
THE STORY OF BLU-BIRD This is my very special car named BLU-BIRD. It is a 1964 Ford Galaxie 500XL Convertible. BLU-BIRD is special because it is about 98% all original. Over the years BLU-BIRD has had a few paint touch ups, otherwise it’s the same car that was born in 1964. I came to own this car by coincidence. In 1967 I bought a ’63 Galaxie 500XL Convertible which was almost identical to BLU-BIRD. It was a great ‘baby blue’ car, but it wasn’t as nice as BLU-BIRD in several ways. The upholstery was different, no power windows and overall few of the special options shown below. It had a 352ci engine and a 2bbl carb. I got married in 1968 and we drove that car to Michigan where I was stationed in the Air Force. Not long after, we traded it in for a new 1968 Ford Torino Fastback. Wish I also had that car now! So how did I get to own this car? Over the years I would look at similar cars on eBay, never intending to actually buy one. Then one night we ordered Chinese for dinner. My fortune cookie said THERE WILL BE A 4 WHEEL INVESTMENT IN YOUR LIFE. So I went to eBay and found this amazing car with only 67,500 original miles on it being offered on consignment by a classic car dealer in Phoenix. After a little negotiation it became mine. True story. As an all original car, BLU-BIRD is a perfect DNA time capsule, having had only normal restorative work to maintain its original beauty. BLU-BIRD is powered by a 390ci engine with a 4bbl carburetor and a C4 automatic transmission. The interior is original and shows it’s age just a little bit. Me too. I like it that way. We’re a good fit. BLU-BIRD has many special options which were available in 1964, as follows: Chrome side mirrors (dealer installed) Stainless steel rocker panels Front bumper guards Spinner wheel covers Rear fender skirts Rare Power windows Rare Trunk mounted antenna (dealer installed) Rare Power trunk latch Very Rare Lake pipes. These were an original option in 1964 and I added them in 2018. These pipes make this car very special and different from all the other Galaxies out there. In the early 60s the Ford Galaxie line dominated the car world. The 1964 Galaxie received two important recognitions. It was the Motor Trend Car of the year and also the NASCAR Grand National Champion. I get a lot of attention with this car and I often win awards. I have received two Best in Show awards. Needless to say, I’m very proud to own BLU-BIRD.
Dave’s 1958 Mercury Voyager 2 door wagon
My wagon is 1 of 568 2 door Voyagers made in 1958. It car went through a seven year frame-off restoration that was completed in late 2020. It has the original MEL 383 and pushbutton transmission. I was fortunate to find Detroit Spring for my new rear leaf springs and front coil springs. The rear suspension is a one year only set-up and Detroit helped me get it back on the road safely.
