Deuce I have bought it in a roll. Most decent HOT ROD shop should have it. I did my 40 Ford with it and it has about 35 thousand miles on it since it was done. Still riding nice ... according to the new owner.

I got mine from Speedway Motors in Lincoln NEB.

This is from their ad

Equal partners in a smooth-riding leaf spring suspension are quality shocks and friction-free movement of the spring leafs.
This special compound of poly-vinyl plastic has a very "slippery" surface. This works as a permanent dry lubricant that eliminates interleaf friction and squeaking. It also features a small lip to keep it in place.

One roll does one cross spring. 20 ft. roll.

Go here ... less than 20 dollars

Front suspension on a '32 Chevy

I see that but it says "Bring money." I'm in my mid seventies and I'm afraid that is not affordable for me. But thanks for sharing. If I could wish.... This would come under the Christmas Tree. The Teflon lining on the leafs does have some promise though. I do know of a professional Teflon Coating applier in the Sacramento area. I'll give him a buzz and talk to see if it is workable. I know it can be applied but will it last and for how long?

Deuce 39 views and no responses ???

If it were me ... I would remove the leaf springs and discard a few ... and line the remaining ones with Teflon ... spring slider.

1932 Chevy front end suspension ideas?

I'm doing a refurbish on a '32 Chevy four door Confederate. I using a full pressure '47 Chevy 216 and a Vega steering gearbox. The current front suspension is by multiple leafs. It rides pretty harsh. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions about reasonable alternative suspension that would improve the ride quality?
