    I'm posting this on a couple of boards here to hopefully get some answers:

    Well ok, I'm getting all my parts gathered together for my solid axle swap on my 96 1 ton chey and the only thing I have left are springs. I need a front 8" and rear 7" pack. But, I need to keep the 1 ton load rating for towing and hauling stuff for work. And the front needs to be stout enough for a 454 and reunel winch bumper. Anyway, I've tried calling National and all I get is a busy signal then once I got a machine and they never called back. I tried alcans phone and left a message with no reply, faxed them, and sent tham email including filling out there form on there website. And I have yet to hear from anyone. What other options do I have here? I need to get some springs so I can get this work done.

    Shipping would be a big pain, but I know a good spring guy up in the Vancouver BC area that will make GOOD springs to suit any application.. Big lift, big load, he'll make em for ya at about 250bucks a piece all new... So about 1000CDN for a set, then shipping....

    Lemme know if your interested.
