  • 1951 2R5-12 truck front leaf springs

    does anyone have the tech data on the front leaf springs for a 2R5-12 truck? I need the specs on them so I can have a new set made up, or does anyone know where I can purchase a set?

    Contact Eaton Spring, they should have all the specs and can make the springs.

        I have some used truck springs, and there is a set of 3R5 front springs in there somewhere -- if I can identify them. Note that the parts books says that there were two different designs for standard-duty 2R5 front springs, with the break point occuring at serial number R5-13771. The two styles will not interchange. (There were also HD springs, which are different again.) Since mine came off of a 3R5, they will be Type B, and would be correct for 2R5s built after that serial number.

        Where are you, as shipping would not be cheap. I'm in DC.
