Wonderful job! I have a few questions: I restored a 1972 88 about 20 years ago and my leaf springs were really rusty. So rusty that they actually were rusted together and offered little flex so the ride was hard as hell. When you sand blasted yours did you separate them first or blast them as a unit? Are you getting good movement between the springs? Is the ride good? Do you think it would be better to put parabolic springs in? Thanks and GREAT JOB!
