    never done it, but your local spring shop will be able to do it for you. From what I have read, rearching is a temporary solution... as its only a matter of time before the spring sags back to its original droopy state. Not sure if that is based on bad rearching jobs or not... but its what I've heard. Springs aren't really that spendy... why not just get a new set?

    Rearched my stock front springs twice. I doubt they even lasted a year each time. I understand tapered springs don't rearch as well as regular, but your local spring shop should be able to tell you that. My shop told me they would'nt keep .... should've listened to them.
