    Where can I find new spring perches for a 14 bolt rear. I know some of you guys have fabricated your own. I am not sure I want to unless they are expensive or hard to find. Thanks

    I got my spring perches (for a 2.75" diameter tube, approx 4.5" long, 2.5" wide spring, can modify it for a C14) from either Milodon or Moroso (forget). It's in their catalogue. You can also get them from Currie. Expect to pay roughly $15 for a pair, to me it's a good price.

    The ones I got were by Moroso from Summit.They are identical in size ,shape ,and thickness to the factory ones and they were less than $20.

    So the ones for 3" dia. axel tubes work fine? I just looked through the catalog and it seems like that is all they have are for 3" dia.

    I took a grinder to the stock ones and ground the welds off around them and beat them off with a 3lb sledge. It took a little bit of time tah just cutting them off with a torch, but I rewelded those back on. They are so much stronger than the after market ones I've seen.

    As long as the tube your putting it on is 3" in dia.I guess if it was a bit bigger you could grind it a little to fit.

    Grinding the welds off of the ones on the axle and reusing them sounds like the best and cheapest way to go.
