    Gotta watch out for some vehicles having more or fewer leaves than others.

    If I were you, I would replace both sides of springs for a good set rather than just one set because you are guaranteed a matching set with the same number of leaves and ride height. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
