- Bolts on in place of shackle
- Standard model uses nylon blocks (does not include bushing)
- Heavy duty version with roller bearings
- For Chrysler or Camaro style springs
Speedway standard leaf spring sliders bolt on in place of your shackles. Long-wearing nylon blocks keep the car from binding up during suspension movement.
Designed for Chrysler type mono-leaf and multi-leaf racing springs. Must be modified to work with the Camaro/Nova/Firebird leaf springs.
- Eliminates "jacking" problem associated with loading & unloading of the shackles
- Helps maintain consistent spring rate for predictable handling
- Requires periodic replacement of nylon slider blocks
- Spring Type: Chrysler
- Spring Eye Rear: 1" I.D.
- Mounting holes on width are 1-3/4" center-to-center
- Mounting holes on long side are 5" center-to-center
Leaf Spring Slider Tech (GIF)
NotesLeaf spring sliders can eliminate the up and down movement of the rear spring eye caused by shackles moving through their arcs during suspension travel. Consequently, the rear suspension's loading points displace less during suspension movement. Sliders, depending on their installed angle, generally reduce the "shackle effect" and provide more consistent spring rates than shackles. There is no "shackle effect" to the rate of the spring when the slider is mounted to point directly at the front spring eye center (this is the preferred mounting position). Since sliders are usually more rigid than shackles, they have less tendency to bind laterally during cornering. In general, sliders improve the handling consistency and predictability of leaf spring equipped race cars.

Q & A
Tim talks about what options we have for hot rod shocks.
When it comes to a traditional style build on an early hot rod it just has to be rolling on a solid front axle of some sort. In this buyer's guide we take you through I-beam and round tube solid axles, spindle choices, radius rod needs, and more.
Learn how to mount a traditional transverse rear leaf spring. These tips will help the installation run smoothly and successfully.
