Default Junk leaf spring, and scrap steel.

Im in need of a leaf spring, coil springs, and any steel you may have. 1/8-1/4"
Cheaper the better, but better yet free.

Please let me know what you have...

Thanks!

Kinda have a rough draft right now, but not set in stone. I will be posting some more info when I get more laid out.

Last year it was just down hill with a minor lil "jump" but we are hoping for a challange this year.


We dont even need to steer, or have any of the fancy shit but style points baby!

We rocked underbodys too...

Id say arount 36" or larger and it would be best if the leaf pack pin/bolt is centered

oh and not flat needs a little arch because I plan to maybe just run the one leaf with the bushings since it will be under such a light item

No longer need coil springs, found a better alternative.
