Maybe I'd try Airstream, to see whether they have something on file.
Regards, Jim.
Airstream has limited imformation on the 80 to 90 models, and just about nothing on 1979 and older models.

The do not have any axle information from 1979 and older.

But, give it a try.

You mean to tell me that in the Netherlands you can smoke pot and have sex with someone for money, but you can't have hydraulic parking brakes? I thought the USA had it's priorities out of whack.

I didn't know all that! Where do I go? LOL!
And just like within the US, parking brakes are mandatory. Mechanical as opposed to hydraulics, is to be more reliable, so they say...

Hello Jim ,

Darn those eaton guys ! well I have an old set of springs from my 60 trdwnd
Ill measure the length and width of them ,they are in the garage easy to check .Eaton could use my spring info to get you that top main leaf you need
Really you ultimately need the second leaf to be supportive of the the top one ,and so on .Well ,discuss it with eaton ,or i can talk to them .it may be
my old springs (not damged or broken by the way) could be used to get you some new ones made .Ill check Sunday and get back to you on it .

Scott

Thanks Scott! That'll be great.
I'm on my Road Trip now and can not always use the internet, and if so, have to keep it short.
In Tacoma WA now, going to 6 Robblees Monday.

Regards, Jim.
