    Rob Leimer (Rob Leimer Landy Parts) had a recent ad on Facebook, there was a pic with stacks of leaf springs.

    Hi Greg why not re-tension?

    I was actually told not to re-tension btw, unless I'm loading a ton, because it will just spoil the ride. Another option is extend the shackles.

    Claude mine has about 3 issues still.
    The springs are not standard they are higher than normal.
    The rims are large with large tyres.
    The dash needs 2 plastic trim thingies.
    Will take some pics.

    Spectator, thanks will attempt the facebook thing.
