Ford Thunderbird Leaf Springs

A classic Ford Thunderbird is an amazing car to take on a ride through a beach town or show off to friends who come over. When you've put a lot of work into your Thunderbird, you want it to run well for years to come. One of the ways to ensure it has a smooth ride and a long lifespan is to replace the leaf springs. Choosing OEM replacement parts for your Ford Thunderbird suspension from General Spring means you'll get a perfect fit and enjoy your classic car for years to come.

About the Ford Thunderbird

Originally created in the 1950s as a response to Chevrolet's Corvette, the Ford Thunderbird was one of the first "personal luxury cars." The first couple models were two-seat convertibles with simple construction and a more reasonable price than expensive imports from Jaguar and Mercedes-Benz.

From 1958-1960, Ford turned the Thunderbird into a four-passenger vehicle. It went through several other variations until 2002-2005, when Ford decided to manufacture the car once again as a two-seat roadster with an egg-crate grille. After the 2005 model year, Ford stopped production after the supply for the Ford Thunderbird was greater than the demand.

When to Replace Your Thunderbird's Leaf Springs

If you own a Ford Thunderbird, you'll eventually need to replace the leaf springs. You can check your Ford Thunderbird suspension to determine whether or not it's time for an upgrade. You'll notice that you may sit lower, or that one side of the car leans over more than the other if one Thunderbird leaf spring is worn. Watch for these indications that your Thunderbird leaf springs need replacing:

  • Harsh ride
  • Front sitting lower than back
  • Can't keep the vehicle in one lane
  • Back of your vehicle isn't in line with the front
  • Noises when you go over bumps
