Hi, I am new to this site, I have a 1965 Sportvan Deluxe. I bought the van as something our whole family can work on and have fun with. The van has a 250 with TH350 trans. Up till now the van has been very driveable but I am needing to replace leaf spring bushings on the front end. There have been several posts about this but I am having trouble finding the parts. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I'm sure others have places to suggest, but this is my source for most spring related stuff. State Spring Grand Rapids MI 1-800-727-8729 M-F

Really any local spring shop should be able to help you, most can make the bushing

Some of those 1st Gens have a bigger front spring bushing cartridge on the passenger side to compensate for the engine being closer to the right side,,,,,,,
