If you are not going to sandblast, then a rust killer as mentioned earlier works great. I use the Teflon end pads used in later model springs I drill a hole in the spring ends to hold the pads. This gives the quiet and easy ride as the full teflon strip, stays in place and is inexpensive. If you have not done any leaf spring work before, you will most likley need a new spring bolt that can be purchased from any local spring shop, and a couple of good C clamps to make the job easier.

There is a guy on one of the international truck sites who is using a 10 to 1 solution of sulphered molasses and water. You can get the Molasses at your local feed store. He mixes it up then lets the rusty parts set in it till they come out clean it also works good on paint. They used to say you could get Teflon paint at the farm stores all so.
