1966 Rear Spring Cup Perches

Does any one no where to get some spring cup perches the part that bolts to the rear lower control arm that the rear springs sit on. I don't have the orginals and wanted to go back to something that is more stock or stock appearance. I wish I had a picture to explain but can't find one.

Thanks

Paul

Currie fabricates these parts and you might also inquire from folks like Hotchkiss and Global West whom make the control arms for the aftermarket if they will sell you those parts seperate from a complete set.

Are these what I should be looking for. I believe the first one is for Mid to late sixties truck and the second one for mid to late sixties Chevelles?

Those are really different from the "B" body cars. Correct ones are like a small bowl. I don't know of anyone who reproduces the correct ones, so used ones are generally the only choice.

I just took mine off my '66 convertible and sandblasted them. Here is a photo for reference.
