I purchased some new leaf springs and the finish is not to my liking. Does anyone know how to take apart the leaf springs for refinishing?
Also, what is the correct finish on the leafs? If painted, what color?
As long as we are on this, what are the other correct finishes. Like the person posting, I am taking out the shock plates, so may as well refinish the springs. The Shock plates are galavanized, springs phospate and oil, shocks black, U bolts-natural finish. Did I get these right? How about the clips that hold the springs together? Right now most everything under the car is painted black, so will be working to change to red oxide. Diff center section is red oxide. Just thought there might be a few of us spending the winter on the cold ground, cleaning blasting and painting the underside.
