I can't see/think of any reason why they wouldn't fit later 2nd gen Firebirds as well.
You might want to call Hotchkis and ask to be sure.

True.
According to their site, they recommend #2409C...which of course is more expensive ;)

4 leaf would be standard for a T/A...other Firebird models used the 5 leaf.

So... the answer is... 2408c is the same as 2409c... they changed the part number because the springs are part of a complete suspension package... and the package changes with the next year up lol...to make it less confusing for then when picking it out 🤣🤣🤣
