Leaf Springs available

I replaced the rear suspension recently on my 1986 classic 345 Moho and kept the rusty but still useful leaf springs. We're now emptying the storage room and I don't want to keep them. If anyone is interested in them, let me know or I'll probably sell them to a junkyard here in the San Francisco Bay Area. Wouldn't want them to go to waste.

Almost 30 year old springs have likely seen better days. They may be useful on a smaller vehicle other wise a metal recycling place would be a good end.

Exclamation Just as soon recycle the springs

Hey Action,
I was kinda hoping someone would say that. The only reason I saved them was because folks on the forums recommended I keep them. I'd just as soon recycle them unless someone has a burning interest.

So folks if you want them, speak within the week or forever hold your peace!

Ya, shipping would have been sky high as well. Just dump them at the recycler and be done with it.

I replaced the rear leaf springs on 1990 E 150 that I use for towing. The springs were basically shot and maybe some one could use them on a utillity trailer however I wasn't going to wait for that opportunity. I just sent them to the metal recycler.
