I have been looking and you would think center pins for leaf spring would be easy to find online but the only site so far is rubicon express for $7.90 each. I am trying to find 3/8 center pins. Any help would be appreciated.

Go to your local hardware store and buy a couple grade 8 nuts and bolts of the size you need. Take them home and grind the heads of the bolts down to fit in the hole in the spring perch.

I work for a suspension shop in Indiana and looked up on our "network" of suspension shops and found this one in NM.

McBrides Inc.
1010 2nd St. NW
Albuquerque, NM 87102
505/242-2174

Maybe this will help.

That is exactly where I get mine but kinda far from Alamogordo. A socket head cap screw from a hardware store could work if you cant find anything else.

Great idea Brian. Better than driving to Albuquerque. That last trip I took to Albuquerque to pick up those CV joints from you was a long drive. I saw you took your flatfender out recently. What are you going to do about your hubs?

Thanks for the help everyone. Things are extremely hard to find in this town. It's a pretty small town.

ACE Hardware has the center pin like bolts with the hex head and round top exactly like the centering pins that come with leaf spring shims......

Lowe's has them. They even say axle bolts are the drawer.
