This chapter is about springs, spring shackles and all hardware to connect the springs to the frame.
Both springs, front and rear, had to be replaced: The front one had several broken leaves and was beyond restoration due to very heavy rust. The rear spring went obviously through a former repair, were the spring was "reconstructed" by combining leaves of different springs. We are not sure, whether all leaves were of Model A origin. The front spring was replaced by a new one, which was treated like a used one: Sandblasted, primed and lubricated. The rear spring was replaced by a good used one, which had to be rstored acording to Les Andrews.
All spring shackles could be used again, the rear u bolts were replaced, the ones in the car were nor original.
