Both front and rear springs on the ute are very worn, with a deep wear mark into the top leaf from the snubber spring.
Sam from Tyabb, the owner of a 28 Chev truck and 28 Roadster, found me a set of rear springs and by a stroke of luck on the way home I scored a set of front truck springs that I can convert to car springs.
Working on the front springs, the first step was to strip and inspect.
A truck spring stripped. The truck spring has 9 leaves and the car 7.
Stripped, sanded and wire brushed, this 28 truck spring will be rebuilt as a car spring.
The original ute springs stripped and wire brushed.
The original ute front spring top leaf with snubber spring wear that is a bit too much for me to be comfortable with, I estimate worn through half the leaf thickness.
