  • Spring Clips

    Howdy All, Well I finished the springs on my 4E, broke them out, sandblasted, and repainted them. [xx(] I have run into the same problem that I ran into years ago when I did them the first time, being unable to find leaf sping clips. When I restored them the first time, about 20 years ago, I was unable to find replacement clips, so used 1/2" spring steel banding, which fit into the molded rubber channels that the original clips rode on. Is there a source that anyone might know of for these spring clips? I can go back to the banding if need be, but would like to use the original clips if they might be available. Thanks in advance for any information. Tim

    Tim,

    ESPO Springs 'n' Things http://www.espo.com/ has them, but I am not sure what widths because I can't find my catalog. The website doesn't show the clips, at least not anywhere that I could find them&lt;G&gt;.

    You can call them on the phone, and they can tell you what sizes they have. They are very inexpensive.

    I used their clips when I added extra leaves to my '54 Champion rear springs, here are a few pics:




    Hope this helps.......

        now that is the kind of anal-retentive attention to detail (and I mean that in a good way) that JP makes fun of me for but makes me really happy when I see it on a car I'm considering buying

        good job, and let's see some pics installed!

          If you meant my anal-retentive stuff, more pics of the '54 and some of my other projects are in my album at Racing Studebakers, here:

          Click on a small thumbnail to bring up the album of your choice. There is some anal-retentive stuff under the '54 Champion album, but most of it is on my '63 Champ restoration albums&lt;G&gt;.
