Datsun Roadster & Fairlady Rear Stock Height & Stock Rate Leaf Spring Sets - AFTERMARKET USA
Designed from original, UNUSED, NEW Nissan 55020-10500 samples, these US made reproductions offer the same ride height, spring rate 158 LBS and performance as the originals. We call this spring 55020-10501. Cosmetic duplication processes: Each leaf of the assembly was duplicated as close to the original as possible including the spacers between each leaf, at the end of the leafs, and even the assembly brackets have been duplicated. The cups as pictured in the 1st photo are no longer reproduced.
The leaf springs come with the front spring bushings already installed. When comparing pricing, please note that pricing from other vendors of their spring sets reflects springs sold WITHOUT the front bushings installed
Manufacturing processes: Each leaf is made from 5160 American made raw steel. Each leaf is formed on a jig with the correct arc at 1800 degrees. Each leaf is then oil quenched and drawn back through a furnace at 700 degrees. Degrees are approximate. The leafs are then assembled as a unit and painted.
