That was the place. I had a crash and lost all my favorites . If he gets new ones I can use one of the main leafs off the old ones.

When I tried to purchase replacement leaf springs for the Pinner Chrysler, Eaton Spring wouldn't make them unless I sent them the originals for patterns. They claim that they have patterns for many cars, but I have my doubts. The cost of shipping springs from CT to MI, was prohibitively expensive. I got a quote from a local spring company, that did have original Chrysler specifications, and they were half the cost of Eaton, without the shipping. After they had the car in the air, the said that my springs were in good shape, just needing some clamps installed. An hour later, they were done with the work, and to the best of my knowledge, they are still working fine.

Paul: We are fortunate to have an "old school / family run" spring shop here in town as well that lives by the "golden rule"..... definately a "breathe of fresh air" in today's "normal" business world. MM
