Holy Moly! I got mine today and they're awesome. I'm telling the truth, everybody should have a set of these in their stash. I'm looking at my old oem spring next to the new one and all I can say is WOW. Hard to see, but the oem is a rusty mess like all of ours waiting to snap. I'm just thankful DoubleNickels stepped up and helped the 55 community out again with these springs, they aren't coming around again. :beer:

All smiles, Ron. Thank you. You'll notice that center arm is about 10-degrees "over-rotated" as compared to normal. I did that to give slightly more spring force to the handle. Heck, for all I know that is how it originally came from the factory but it settled/yielded slightly over time.

Thanks again!

I guess I should have a set on hand. Set a set aside for me Calvin. I'll grab it from you sometime, no need to ship.

Absolutely, Dan. I'm swooping through Boise this weekend, will bring down a set.

Also, with the exception of maybe one gent in Canada (I'd expect shipping to take a few extra days?), everyone should have received their springs. If you did NOT just ping me and we'll do some digging.
