To fit in the cross member, sometimes the top leaf must have the top edge ground on a taper. To disassemble, use two C-clamps to hold the leafs together. Remove the shipping center pin and slowly
release the C-clamps. Apply graphite lube (like our RSP105) or a spring liner (A5310PS1) to each leaf, using the clamps to compress the leafs together. Install the correct square head bolt, cut off the excess length and use
a hammer to peen over the bolt on the nut. Most 1928-31 Model A Ford front springs are fatigued from years of engine weight.
