Default "mystery" leaf springs

Here I am again, looking for an expert out there in cyberspace....


My '58 had a leaf-spring assembly installed by one of the previous owners.

I want to take them apart and clean them up. I also want to replace the rubber pieces and the little round anti-squeak pads.

The rectangular rubber pieces where the springs attach to the axle are Ford part number "B9SS-5732A". T-Bird parts catalogs list this part as "5741".

These are 2" wide leaf springs. There are 6 leaves total. I'm wondering where these springs came from, as they maybe arent from an old T-Bird at all?

Second question is how to get them apart. There is a bolt with some sort of shoulderless acorn nut holding them all together at the center.

Front spring eye bushings will also be replaced, but I dont want to order a bunch of parts and then have them all be wrong for my "mystery" springs....
