I'm restoring a 70 Challenger T/A and was wondering if the leaf springs are just run-of-the-mill or are they special. T/A's have a different stance, but I don't know if this is from the larger rear tires only or if the leaf springs contribute.

I am not so sure they are the same, I think the T/A springs are the same right and left while the hemi springs has an additional leaf in one side to control torque steer or some thing like that.

The Challenger T/A and AAR Cuda had unique symmetrical leaf springs with increased camber which provided additional clearance for the side exit exhaust and the larger rear tires. It also provided what Dodge advertised as a "Daytona Rake" for increased down-force on the front end for extra stability. I am sure I could dig up the P/N if you are interested.
