Bronco springs.

I made them so they stick out a little off the frame to keep the springs straight up and down. And when I made the templates for each piece I forgot to take into consideration the thickness of the metal

I got them on the frame today as well as arm brackets. I think I made a boo boo though with measuring for the arm brackets...

I'll find out tomorrow for sure.
