Default 69 camaro BB 5 leaf spring

Hi
My BB 69 Camaro is saging on one side, Thinking of buying repo but assembly line look that Heartbeat city sells for $408.00 , Are these any good ?? Just wanted to get some input or is there another avenue I should go.
Thanks for your help.
Ken

Ken, I bought a set of assembly line/factory correct multi-leaf springs for my 69 Camaro from Heartbeat city. In my opinion they were worth the cost.

Does Heartbeat carry the BOB HARRIS repros? I have used 2 sets of BOB Harris's CORRECT rear leaf springs and they are great.

What I did was purchase a set of Eaton 5 leaf, which do not look original. I then took them apart for the Eaton primary leaf, and reassembled with the other 4 original leafs. I also got correct looking pads from somewhere. I painted them with OER's Leaf Spring paint, which gives them the heat treated look. The result is a new-acting, original-looking set.
