Exclamation Springs!

I need a set of springs, Ive got a 84 110.

My fronts are sagging, standard height would be nice if you have a whole set or a HD set with a lil lift. Id take a 2in set as long as i dont need to upgrade anything else.

Jusp looking to swap them in quickly.

The 110 truck cab and vans came that way- higher in the rear so that when loaded they leveled out.

Not necessarily. One side of the truck is heavier than the other and it may even it out.

Agreed that may be a possibility, but if im in there id just like to replace them. I figured someone would have a set lying around after a upgrade to lift

I have a pair of RR3-3 but it'll cost an arm and a leg to ship them cross country.

I'll have the ones off my 1983 110 available in a few weeks, all sand blasted and ready for paint. Seem to be in OK shape. Ron or Doug may be able to comment on condition.

I just dropped the engine and tranny back on the frame so I'll take a pic. Ron had the truck as one piece so he can probably answer that ?

For years Rover coil springs were "handed". The driver's side spring is a shade stiffer so that the vehicle sits level with the driver.
