69 convertible rear spring help

Hi folks,
I am trying to find new rear springs for my 69 442 convertible. They year and model seem to be the one I cannot find offered in many places. When I do it is about 3 times the cost of springs from every other model and convertibles in year before and after. Are the springs in a 69 convertible really a 1 year only?

I have been researching all morning...AKA confusing myself more.

I noticed in my assembly manual that there are different springs for the auto trans than the manual for this series of car, yet I do not see any indication of a difference in any of the springs offered. Really I just want to get the right springs, but I am curious what the difference would be and if it matters since my car has been converted to an automatic.

Can anyone explain the difference, and tell me if the 69 convertible spring really is a one year only?

Thank you,

I used a set from inline tube. they show for 70-72 and was happy with the ride height. INL 12045. I paid $120.
