That would be interesting, lol.

Warning on Package:
"Open with this end facing away from face and anything valuable!"

Open package, and springs fly out ala can of peanut brittle style with worms.

Unfortunately, I've actually seen improperly mounted coil springs launch about 30 feet out and probably a good 30 feet in the air, finally coming to rest across two power lines, making the town not very happy with my friend.

OT note -

The voltage/amperage in service lines is enough to literally cut a spring in half if contact is made strongly enough. Consequently, the surge will probably kill one or more transformers.

That would've been a sight to see!


Just an update:
I might have a local guy with the springs I need so my deal with Ben is on hold until I hear back from potential flaker guy (most local guys from the car forums tend to flake out on buying things)
