    Anyone happen to know of a spring company that made leaves for a 60 (5 leaf) that was in Canada???


    I have these suspicious "made in Canada" stickers on the front springs on stubby..

    They are pretty flat, so I kinda doubt they are lift springs but who knows ;)

    I have 2.5" BDS springs in the front of my 60 and they say "Made in Canada"

    Might be Alcan, too. I was looking at thier site this week, after viewing the parabolic spring thread on 60 Series FAQ.

    Alcans are made here in CO, I dont think they are Canadian are they?

    I know that McCoy is the spring maker in Canada that does springs for various companies. Superlift, BDS, and more... So they are stamped Made in Canada, sold under whatever brand name but actually McCoy makes them. They kind of have a bad reputation from what I remember, but my FJ40 Superlift was wonderful and I have heard good about BDS. Maybe it just depends on what specs (like the Pinnacol springs are 3in instead of 2 1/2in)

    I have the BDS made in Cananda. They were a little bouncy at first but now 10 mos. later they are less bouncy. Seem much more heavy duty than stock. I do have a very slight lean to driver side but overall I am very satisfied.

    Not that I know of. JTO had been but said that they were having service problems after some company change back in AU. If you go on Ironmans website and look for NA dealers I think the only one is in Canada.

    I had OME on my old 60, I've got Ironman on my current one. 3-4 years ago when I got it there was a huge price difference so I went with Ironman. Its pretty nice but not a flexy as the OME. I'd rec' it but if its not available then there isn't any pointed in rec'ing it. BTW I would definitely NOT rec' the light OME front springs for a 60.

    My BDS Springs are made in Canada. I feel that they are worth the money.
