Something dosen't look right with this spring

Postby 1974361ll » Mon May 02, 2016 7:10 am

I went put new tires on Saturday and discovered front spring trouble. Looks like it had been that way for little while. Kinda scary. If anyone has some let me know. I might just put two new ones on ... i' am waiting for the sticker shock when the spring shop calls me back.

You could just a get a new main leaf made up, the rest of the stack is fine. Maybe have them re-arched

Looks like the main and wrap leaf.

Actually, when I took mine up to the spring shop to be looked at because of wear where the lower ones were hitting, he said they were fine. He actually said, "you can't buy springs like this today... everything now is junk". I believed him... I deal with it every day.
