    I need to rebuild or replace my leaf springs on a '61 Econoline. Are there any resources for new springs available?

    I have yet to find anyone who sales the entire leaf spring new. You can find parts Shackles, bolts etc.

    I plan to have mine re-arched locally

    Give a call to St Louis Spring. Jim tells me he can make any spring you need in house. Prices are based on the amount of metal in the spring. He has all the spec sheets for just about any spring you want.

    Really?! I've talked to guys at 2 of their branches and both seemed very skeptical about being able to make them. I even brought the springs in for inspection. I ended up just getting them re-arched.

    Here is an email I got back from eatonsprings.com...


    Neal,

    Front springs are 399.00 for the standard 5 leaf plus $75.00 for shipping.
    I do not list the rear as 4/1 and 5/1, they are just 5 or 6 leaf. The 5 leaf spring is $359.10 for the pair and the 6 leaf is the same price plus $75.00 for shipping on either set.

    We accept Visa, Master Card, Discover, American Express, Money Orders, Wire Transfers, Checks and Cash. Sorry no COD.


    Thank You
