I know a few of you have put teflon strips between the leafs in your springs, but where's a good place to get it? If I can get a ride Saturday morning, I'm going to try and find some I can put in my springs.
Well I couldn't get either, but with several thick coats of slip-plate and then a coat of the spray on (liquid, so good thing I managed to get some slip-plate) teflon I got over that, my springs are slippery as I'll get out. I could barely even even hold the buggers in place to put the front spring packs back together! They've got a MUCH more pronouced arch with the add-a-leafs installed, and the center part of the spring is about 2" lower than the bottom of my axle (which is on jackstands, duh), whereas without the add-a-leafs, they were just barely in contact with the axle. Can't wait to put the rear packs back together!Pluton said:Teflon is not a physically tough material. The OME springs use nylon, which is; HDPE would probably be an acceptable(if not quite as tough) substitute. You can obtain either from mcmaster.com if the locals are not helpful.
