I was looking under my '55 Safari today in preparation to lift it for removal of the belly pan as part of the restoration process.
Wow does that old axle/leaf spring look old!
I once had a 54 Pontiac Chieftain with leaf springs which I had repaired and reconditioned, but that is another story...
The Safari towed like a dream when I brought her home, a 200 mile trip, so I do not think I really need to replace the axle, perhaps just buff off the crud and put a nice POR coat on.
Anyway, just in case I need to replace the Safari's axle/leaf spring assembly, what type/manufacturer axle leaf spring was originally installed on a 1955
Here are a few pictures of the 55 Safari wheel/axle/leaf spring
