artictraveller thanks for updating. You're kind of paving the way for me, been following your reports for a possible source of new springs I plan on sometime early 2019. I would definitely be interested to hear how they address the rear sag.

The only way I can think of is adding another leaf, a spacer under the spring, or longer shackles. For now, I'll just live with it.

Yes, After a few years my Deavers settled a bit, I just had BOR add a 1" block under them....perfect! Hard to add another leaf to a pack without rebuilding the thing entirely, at the very least, you have to pull the whole thing out, I think.

It took a while, but I finally got around to ordering the front springs. I could have measured them my self and ordered by phone, but it was simpler to just drive a couple thousand miles and drop by his shop so he could measure them for me. That way I'm sure they will be exactly what I want. So, they are being built right now. I ordered them on Wed, and expect to have them installed next Tuesday! No 8 to 12 week wait, and they cost under $700. Based on my experience with the rear ones, I expect to be quite happy with the fronts too. Plus, I got to watch the beginning stages of thier fabrication. Of course I can only load one photo per post, and it's sideways too, gurrrrr

Yeah, very cool. Hope they paint them in a way that doesn't rust...

. So far so good on the rears. They dip them in some sort of coating, I'll ask what it is.
