    Well I have been having withdrawal, I have not been on here in TWO WEEKS! I have pile of posts to look at too. Anyway I am back and unfortunately I have a problem. See I was overhauling the brakes on my K5 this weekend because they had been getting a little mushy lately. Got that problem fixed, but I was casually glancing around under it when I noticed, old faithful has a broke left front leaf spring! The main leaf is almost in two. My question is, what are some good places to get a replacement from? Should I go ahead and replace both sides since they are old? Yall's help would be much appreciated[​IMG].

    Do you have a lift? If you dont, this sounds like a good excuse to get one[​IMG]

    If you don't have a lift and don't want one, I have two springs you can have. You pay for the shipping and they're yours. They came off of my 83 3 months ago.
