Who makes new spring pack center pins in different lengths?
I got mine from SuperLift...Not sure of the part #, But I suppose you could call them up and ask them. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
They come with the zero rates from ORD. /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif
You can get them at NAPA. No phone call, no shipping. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
I used grade 8 bolts for mine
Napa usually have a very good selection. Or a local spring shop.
I use grade 8 bolts and gring the head roung. I acually carry spares cause I've broke a few.
whats diameter of these pins anyways ? i need ro know for when i get the 14 bolt ff stuck under the 81. like 1/4 or 5/16" ?
Chevy center pins are 3/8", Ford are 7/16" (at least the 57" F-150 springs use 7/16")
just get the black steel allen key bolts. they're stronger than grade 8 and the head is already round and fits down in the hole. any hardwares store has em for a dollar a piece
<font color="green"> I just used a grade 5 bolt and used a grade 8 nut ground round. I used the nut end since it's alot deeper than the head of the bolt. Worked pretty well. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Picture - http://community.webshots.com/photo/42414059/56463346zhKznr</font color>
