I purchased some 63 comet convert leafs from www.mcveighstrucksprings.com and they were cheaper than a lot of other places and they fit great.

I bought mine from Jc whitney .Years ago.For my RANCHERO,I recomend to check the spring rate. Mine is not strong enough. I have heard that McVeigh's is better than good.

If you can find another set of spring you can take apart the spring pack and add a few leaves to yours all you need are some clamps or pipe clamps and a new center bolt. Will add some stiffness but if you got creative you could do like on a 3/4-ton pick were it would be progressive as you added weight.
