    Holy s&amp;^%. Those are some serious looking springs and probably would be stiff as a brick. If he paid $3000 for them new he is going to take a huge loss selling them. Some people have more money then brains.

    The only positivwe thing they have going for them, is that they are National Springs.

    But, jeese... they are near vertical!!!

    i bet the highest bidder puts it on a trailer queen show truck

    looks like they would collapse to the sides and foldover if on a truck
