i use sliders in my coupe, i mainly put them in to slow down the wear on the springs and having rust coming out when driving in the rain. they have been in there for about 10 years now.

Zonk,
I think Milner is talkin about the poly liners that go between the leafs to reduce friction.

As far as the sliders you refer to, I don't recall ever seeing any on a street rod, but have seen them used on race cars. If done right they look trick. I don't know how you plan on doing them but I would recomend using some type of bearing for longivity. I've seen some that just has a bolt stuck through the spring eye and that rides in a bracket with a slot cut in it.

Good Luck, Mark
