Good luck and keep posting, the folks here are a great source of knowledge.
I ordered a new set from OTD Mart. Seemed the easiest way, and not too expensive. My Dad has been a tool maker for 30 years. I'll post some pics of what he makes. He's got a desk job now, so he's always happy to wander down to the shop to make something.
Also, has anyone swapped in leaf springs on a vintage AS. I know it will raise it's profile a bit, but thinking of swapping them while I'm repairing the frame. I know it will work, just wondering what the cons might be.
