    Retemper leaf springs. Anyone in Essex?

    Got my PU back this afternoon after a lot of work on the front end (pics to follow).

    Now realised that the rear springs are shagged and need to be retempered/arched and could do with a set of new bushes.

    Anybody recommend somebody capable fo doing this in and around Essex or is it best to just try the old Internet?

    Thanks

    If you go for the internet option, try Jones Springs in Darlaston. Top service at sensible price

    Another place not in Essex is Paddington Motor Springs in the shadow of Wembley Stadium

    I have used Brost forge recently for my truck springs to be re-arched, use them, they are good and down to earth, its a bit tricky to find, but worth the effort
