CORVAIR SPRINGS

by Timothy Palmer

Below is a compilation of spring part numbers and descriptions from the parts books and assembly manuals. It may not be complete or fully accurate list. The parts book is confusing and down right wrong in areas. The assembly manuals helped to sort out a lot of confusion although it was no help with front springs since they were part of the front suspension assembly.

A few notes may help you. Different springs were used on air conditioned cars, convertibles and heavy duty suspension option. Heavy duty suspension was a option from 62-69 except 64. Apparently there was no heavy duty suspension option for 64, however the 64 Spyder used different springs which I assume were heavy duty.
