Does Your 1949-1956 Mercury Need New Leaf Springs?
Suspension systems and technology have come a long way since the 1940s, and you're lucky if all suspension parts of your 1949-1956 Mercury are still intact. With select releases in Mercury's lineup being over 70 years old, there's a good chance your OEM leaf springs are not what they used to be.
If your classic ride has been sitting in storage for several years, inspect the suspension components for any wear and tear. You can tell if your collector car is in need of new leaf springs based on the following criteria:
- There is visible rust on springs
- The hood or cargo area leans toward the ground
- You see chips and cracks along springs
- The steering wheel is unresponsive
- You hear unpleasant sounds when operating the vehicle
- Leaf springs are missing
