    Anyone know where I can get a new one?

    I was thinking Napa or Advanced but the leafs are 4in Rough Countries. I dont think the factory leafs pin will fit.

    I've bought them at NAPA. They come WAY longer than you need, so it's easier to work all of the springs onto the bolt, before you start clamping the pack together. Once you have the pack together, then you install the nut and cut off the excess part of the bolt.

    Be sure to use some big C-clamps to hold the spring pack together as you take the old pin out. [​IMG]

    Thanks. I figured if I clamped them before removing the old one the new one should go in pretty easy. I will try and run by Napa today.
