    Finally ordering up some UHMWP
    But I ran into a few problems.
    Theres some info I need but dont know.

    how thick should the uhmwp be for lining the rear springs. These are the thicknesses they offer:
    04" | .05" | 1/16" | .08" | 1/8" | 3/16" | 1/4"

    The springs are 2.5 inches wide. Should I buy 2.5 wide stuff or should it be wider?

    And how many inches of this material will I need to do both rear springs.

    Thank you!

    alright, did more serching around. Need about 25 feet or so. approx. 0.030" to 0.060" in thickness.

    but could I get away with 2.5" wide or is 3" better.
