Default Re: How to treat the new Front Leaf Spring

When I did my springs, I sand blasted to remove corrosion. Skirfed the mating surfaces. Then chamfered the ends where they slide over the leaf below. Then applied a dry graphite lube, Lubribond 122, on all rubbing surfaces. Then assembled. Finally, remove excess lube from exposed surfaces with my favourite paint prep solvent and paint assembled.
