Mk1 escort Capri 2.8 single leaf shopping list

Recommended Posts

I have a mk1 escort running an atlas axle. It had mk1 escort multi leaf springs fitted which need replacing. I was advised that Capri 2.8 single leafs fit and would be less harsh a ride with these fitted.

apart from the locating pin does not match up, the metal plate that goes on top of the spring and has a rectangular bush between the plate and spring is too big - as it originally had multi leaves.

does anyone know if I can buy the plate for single leaf springs or can I fit a lowering block in the gap etc?

thanks for any info, I’m not mechanically minded and the car is just rotting sitting outdoors. Need to try get this suspension sorted so I can drive it to a mechanic to try get bit’s done on it.
