If you are referring to the black rubber bumper(s) that bolts to the spring cover (see below picture),  I believe they are the same for either a six or eight cylinder suspension. I installed a set of Scott Drake reproduction bumpers when I put the Mineral Wells Super Springs in the Ranchero. These bumpers only lasted a few short miles before they came apart. To be honest, I gave them a pretty good whack one day, but they definitely are not as robust as the factory originals. I was hunting for an NOS set of genuine Ford bumpers when my brother took off for Sacramento with the Ranchero.

Nice blue springs as far as the bumpers I'd check with a local body shop

That's the rubber bumper I'm talking about but Ron at falcon Parts.com says the 6 cylinder and the V8 are different. 1963-1965 6 CYLINDER FRONT REBOUND BUMPERS

SKU: C3DZ-3020-A
 

This is a front rebound bumper which fits all models of the 1963-1965 Ford Falcon & Mercury Comet equipped with a 6 cylinder engine.

It is not as the wide as the rebound bumpers used on the V-8 equipped vehicles.



Price: $4.95

I used 1964 1/2 or 1965 Mustang V8 Square style bumpers when I put the front end back together the first time but I would like to find some original style bumpers this time.
