Series parabolic springs or axle parts

Long shot but need to get my galv series frame rolling so I can move it around. Anyone have set of series 88" parabolic springs? Shocks? NOS axle parts towards rebuilding old ones. Prefer new or good condition parts. Can ship on my ups dime and pay PayPal or money order.

Why don't you order from Rocky Mountain? Shipping should be reasonable given your location.

I was going to but am on a tight wife budget so I figured if I could score a deal and spread my $ it's worth a post to try and find some lightly used

It is the sort of thing that people buy and install. There is not much reason to remove them so I would suspect finding used ones would be extremely rare.

Not sure that is a deciding factor. RM used to have their spring here in Calgary and they had endless problems of quality control and sagging.

The steel is the biggest problems with the sagging . I have used some of the UK made springs with good results on 88" rigs lightly loaded .
You can have National spring build you packs that will last and get the ride you want .

The steel and its heat treatment. You can get the best in the world in China if you want and you can get horrible crap in America if you want. Location if manufacture means nothing.

I've heard no problems with RMs current springs. I have a set and they have no sag.

Like I said. The problem springs were made in Canada.
