1956 4 door 210 - speedometer, rear suspension

I replaced my speedo cable hoping that was the issue with a "grinding" noise I was getting from the dash, but that does not seemed to have helped.
Do I have replace the entire set of gauges or is there a way to just replace the speedometer?

My current rear suspension is the original 3 leaf springs. I only seem to find 4, 5, and 6 leaf spring replacements. I'm just looking for a stock ride. Will the 4 leaf be too stiff?

If the cable is good, then just the speedo head can be replaced

Four or Five leaf will be fine IMHO
Your 56 sedan would have come with a 4 leaf spring... I have never seen a 3 leaf or a listing for a 3 leaf spring... Replaced my old & cracked 4 leaf with a new 4 leaf about 4 years ago... Felt it sat too high in the rear so I installed 2inch lowering blocks... :anim_25: with your 56... Later, Dave
mine sounded the same way last yr.This spring I had to replace the speedo the cable was fine but the guts of the speedo went bad
