Default Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Installed the spring perch pins yesterday as well as the spring covers.
I always install NOS (OEM) springs o restore the proper / designed height and handling characteristics to the vehicle. I clean and powder finish the individual leaf's and apply a thin coat of fifth axle grease between each leaf upon assembly.
The KRW tool makes installing the pins a breeze - perhaps 5 minutes each maximum.
The covers were NOS, my last set. Note the spring must be flat in order to install these. The entire job took a bit more than three hours.
