Anybody have any ideas and/or plans for re-arching leaf springs?

a large hammer, a buddy holding.

I'm askin for a couple of poor racin buddies. I'd buy new myself. I've heard of guys taking loose the rear of the springs and using a come-along attached to something forward of the rearend.

A big hammer, a real strong arm and a good anvil will do the job. Most spring shops have a press that does the job in about 3 minutes and they don't even have to take the spring apart. Chunka..chunka..chunka...! Usually not expensive either. Be sure to chalk mark the floor with the spring's shape to know where you started. SLEEPY
