Leaf Spring Wrap Reproduction Project Launch

I can officially announce this project with some costing & timing now. Reviewing available options out there, I do not see reasonable options for American springs. Our springs are a rather rare 2" width. Wrap kits from AMK (Ford) and MOPAR vendors are for 2.5" wide springs.

This project will duplicate the (2!!) different spring wrap sizes on an American & SC/R rear leaf spring, only done in a very close to bare steel look in 304 SS. These will also be pre-bent unlike other options for all 4 corners to exacting dimensions. To add further authenticity, I am planning on stamping the original spring "OSP" manufacturer's ID on each wrap as shown in the photo below. (original parts shown in photo)

Ref. P/N 3207496

I am currently working on a good option for rubber cushions, which might modify the following product offering. This will be a very limited first run production. I will be making just 18 kit sets available after reserving my own. Kits are anticipated to be available by mid-May. I will allow set reservations below without payment necessary until I physically have the kits ready.

If the kits include only the (4) SS wraps - $40
If I can make the rubber cushion addition - probably around $50. Shipping for up to (2) sets will be USPS Priority: $7.15

This will be a very competitive price point vs. Big 3 stuff that isn't right for our actual application, especially considering the extremely low volume level. You can post your interest level.  This is being offered concurrently on the SC/R Facebook Page.

AGAIN - Please note, you can post interest here.  The 18 sets will be spoken for in total order between here and the SC/R Facebook page.  I'll start taking money in May when I have the kits assembled.

Kevin,

I'll take two (2) sets.
The difference between people and AMC's is that they will always be making more people; they won't be making more AMC's
