  • Rear Axle: Rear Leaf spring Identification with part number

    Hi All.
    I bought a pair of rear Leaf springs from Studebaker International years ago that are supposed to be for my 62 Lark Convertible.

    Today I had them out to check as I finally have to use them and they are definitely not for a Lark Convertible.

    The Part Number on them is 1556534

    I can't find that in my 53 to 58 and 59 to 64 parts books and wonder if it might be a 65 and 66 part number. They look the same size as my 63 Wagonaire.

    Can anybody give me a clue to what these are off and what they will fit ??


    It's one of those great expensive mistakes that happen where there is no way to return them since I am in the UK.

    Thanks

        Thanks guys,
        as a matter of interest, why isn't that part number in the normal parts book or is that a different book for taxi's ??

          If you have the September 1963 edition it should be on page 431. Also, I checked the price books to see if they were using that as a replacement for the original number, but it doesn't show that it is.

            Hi Dwain,
            thanks for the tip. That part number is not in the back of the parts book part number listing, but is on page 431.

            So SI did send me what I had asked for.

            I became a little confused as I have a set of rear springs for my 63 Avanti I am changing out and pulled the Lark spring thinking they would be the same size. The Avanti spring is miles shorter. My 62 ragtop was a 6 but has an 8 in it now and the boot is loaded with parts so I can't get under it easily to see the shagged rear leaf spring easy and jumped to the wrong conclusion on size thinking a Lark and Avanti spring were the same size. Well I learnt something there.
            Regards
