im going to disassemble my leaf packs this spring and clean up the rust build up. i was thinking of lubricating them with never sieze or somthing like that. im now interested in finding some material to make full length anti friction pads for between the leaves. does anyone know of a resource for teflon, nylon, or similar material to make these out of. i would go with just tips but i dont have holes in the ends of the leaves and dont know of another way to hold the tips in place. im not sure if its worth it to drill the leaves.
thanks...




yep, im a newbie.....ill try to act intellegent.:flipoff2:

1. Try DELRIN,
2. It's durable,
3. It's less expensive than a similar TEFLON based product,
4. The stuff's used in applinaces,
5. It can be bought in:
a. Tape,
b. Sheets.
6. You can buy the sheets and cut strips,
7. Insert between the leaf springs.
8. Refurbish the springs and coat with slip plate.

Along the same lines; what about paint?

Not to hijack the thread... well, maybe, but it's related...

What paint works with springs; flexible, but not going to wear off, and maybe slippery in itself?
