The FE-7 cars in 82 were equipped with a steel rear leaf spring. Some sayit was a 9 leaf, but on my
82 CE FE-7 it's equipped with a factory 7 leaf spring GM Part# 14021604. BTW this spring has been discontinued from GM.
If you need a 7 leaf spring get one here; http://www.guldstrand.com/ I ordered one and love it. A friend of mine ordered a 7 leaf from another vendor, cost about $99 and the fit is terrible. The spring is too wide(length wise) and is only about 1/4" away from rubbing the inside of his rims, it rubbed a groove on his wheel weights. Remember the old saying, "You get what you pay for."
