Suspension Springs for Fintail

I need to replace the rear suspension springs as I've bottomed out a few times. Anyone know where I can get a pair for a 1964 220 Sb Fintail?

Have you tried Millers?

It would be better to check on the central differential mount, in the back of the trunk in the middle, the lateral support mount bushings and the training arm support bushings, both front and rear, before you get new springs, which don't go 'bad'. Oh, and buy new Bilsteins.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
