    Can someone measure the center bolt if you have an old set of springs lying around? I need the bolt diameter and the pin diameter for custom steel caster shims.
    Thanks!

    Mine are all 3/8" fine thread and take a 9/16" socket. Just worked on the springs about 2 hrs ago /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    A 3/8" socket hd cap screw is usually what works, someone corect me if Im wrong.
