Default Re: How to treat the new Front Leaf Spring

To prep a spring for use I first sandblast each leaf then grind any wear pockets smooth. I then grind a bevel on the bottom of each leaf to help prevent it wearing another pocket in the next leaf under it.

I then paint each leaf, coat the bottom of each leaf with Mystik JT-6 and sprinkle graphite on the grease. I then assemble the pack and wrap it with spring covers.

This is my friend's rear spring, which he had powdercoated.
