I did NOT get new springs today!

I got a call from the seller before going over, that he couldn't find the springs!

He had moved recently, and lots of things were still in boxes or unknown locations.

Later in the day, I was meeting my EV buddies Tom and Rich to do some work tearing down some equipment in Tom's warehouse.

And Rich was ba ba baaaa! (Fanfare) His Ford Ranger 4x4!

I had my Metro spring with and compared that to the front spring in Rich's truck, as best I could with the wheel in the way.

I looks like they are a pretty close match, except that the Ranger springs are in UPSIDE DOWN compared to the Metro springs!
