I am very pleased with the interior and rumble seat spring sets that I purchased from Mac's.

Since we are on the subject of seat springs, I have found that in many cases the front seats are too soft. I put a new interior in my Town Sedan. In the process, I took a close look at the seat springs and put some stiffer coils from an old rear seat bottom that I got at Hershey. What a difference. Now I was sitting on top of a comfortable seat instead of "inside it!" Take a close look at how the coils are wired in place and how they react when a load is placed on them. It doesn't hurt to have additional retainers to keep the coils in place and vertical. Also, do a good job of spray painting them for long life. Ed

Others may carry them but I believe Snyder’s is the main/best manufacturer
I’ve seen some imported stuff before but not in awhile......good! (Good that I haven’t seen any!)

If your looking for more leg room forget the springs. I just had a car done with 2'' of foam. It looks and feels great.....I have also gained some leg room.

No Quite the opposite. But they also happily answer the phone.

Not sure what the problem was. Yesterday I was able to place order and springs should arrive tomorrow. I have always liked Snyder's great company.
