Hi guys,
Question about rear spring plate.
On my 924 1979, I have two different spring plates.
So it should be?

The '76 cars had a rear suspension setup that didn't allow for ride height adjustment without reindexing the torsion bars.

Cars built after that had spring plates such that you could do some height adjustment with an eccentric bolt attached between the pivot point and the full spring plate.

It looks like you have one plate from a '76, and another plate from a later car.

Since yours is a '79, both should be 2-piece, like the one on the left as mentioned above.
