    Just got back from the junkyard... when we pulled up we saw a chevy long bed that used Pressure treated 4x4 blocks of wood for his body lift lol.......... then i find the right leafs that i was looking for 56"...... i get one off and im starting on the next one, when i hear my friend yell at me to come over there. He found 2 leaf springs that were the ones that i wanted, already taken off the truck and just sittin on the ground.
    So i pick one up and accidently drop it on my thumb. Blood starting gushing Lol........ Just wanted to share my 2 hours of mayhem at the junkyard today :P

    Heres what I found when I went the other day......

    in just an hour I found 7 sets of ford 57's (all are bathing in PB blaster as we speak (type :P) and I asked if he had any f-250 shock towers...so I pointed him out a set.....turned around and walked back through the ford section and I found 4 other sets in plain sight with no fenders on them...easy pickings,LOL

    So I'll have 4 sets of Towers and 7 sets of Springs.
