    Hello All!
    Just finished replacing the rear leafs and shocks on the 67 Dart. Before and after Pics attached. Used Stock 5 leaf from ESPO along with new front pivot bolts and u-bolt kit. Couldn't have been happier with the service and products from them. Had never attempted this job before so lots of head knocks, busted fingers, and really sore shouders! Love the way the car stands up in the back now. Next stop: fuel tank, sending unit, and fuel line replacement!

      Good job. I was also happy with my ESPO springs. Post your fuel tank and sender job when you get to that point.

        You would think I would have taken a "before" side view but I didn't!
