Leaf Spring

Ok i was just wondering, i guess my new truck needs another leaf spring as this one now is kinda junk, wouldnt pass inspection. So im wondering how much would a new or used one go for, and how long does it take to install???

prob $50 max at a junk yard.. well install can go one of 2 ways.

first scenario

you go out there have all the tools. it comes right off bolts are not rusted in the bushing sleeves. no issues.. naked ****** dance around you when your taking it off..

second scenario..

you have all the tools go out there. all the bolts are rusting in the sleeves. you cuss for hours beat on crap.. finally get it out.. go to dealer for new bushings sleeves. order bushings. because there not in stock.. go in next day get bushings tell the counter guy WTF where is the sleeve... "oh sir thats extra.." WTF its part of the bushing.. then order that because its not instock either.. go in next day.. finally get all your crap go put it together.


enjoy..
