  1. Thanks, for your advise, and comments..... I owned a 1930 Franklin 4 door sedan... that weighed right at 4,000 lbs..... it would cruse at 50-55 mph all day long..... and in real rough dirt roads is was very smooth..... The AA truck weighs 2,800 lbs and If I put about a half ton in it, it would weigh about the same as the Franklin sedan....... The AA has strong radius rods that keep the axles steady.... and the Full Elliptic springs could easily be mounted on brackets fabricated to the frame and axles..... Add some coil over shocks and you have a good stable, floating-like ride on rough roads.... The model A &AA transverse front and rear springs... give a poor, rough ride on pot holed, washboard, dirt roads... that is the reason most cars & trucks of that same Era, used four, half elliptic, leaf springs... giving a much better ride than any Model A or AA Ford...... I can not afford to have a professional spring shop, fabricate the mounting perches and brackets for parallelly mounted leaf springs....... I know there are may opinions about what to do or not do... and how to best do it.... But, this posting is asking if anyone has some Franklin, or now, Stanly Steamer,.... Full Elliptic Springs..... For Sale...???
  2. I know the Franklins had them front & back.... giving them a very smooth ride..... in very rough roads. Did other makes have the Full Elliptic springs...?? If so, What makes and what years..?? If anybody has some extra spare sets of the Full Elliptic springs.... I am interested in buying some..... my Model AA has a very stiff, back braking, jolting ride,..... on washboard, country dirt roads..... and I am seeking a smoother ride for it..... Please contact me if you have some springs you might sell me... thanks, Sunny 505-990-6008

  7. Ok... First I will say.. these are not going onto a Franklin... I am building my own chassis and running gear.... so I was hoping to get some springs from the heavier models of Franklins .... about 2,500 lbs. to 3, 700 lbs. So I was hoping that someone with Franklin parts, might tell me what type and size of springs you have.. (length, width and number of leafs).... photos of them would help me know if they will work for my project..... . Thank you, Sunny sunnybabaspirit@yahoo.com
  8. Thanks for the advice Walt..... I would like to actually have front and rear... (4 sets ) of springs from a Franklin series 14,15,16, or 19, but would consider earlier series as well... It would also be nice to have the spring perches as well and the mounting bolts, if you have those as well .....
  9. Wanted Two sets of Front, full elliptic Springs In Good useable condition.... mounting bolts also needed..... I am in New Mexico... so the closer to the southwest... the better. Please let me know what you have and how much you want for them. PM me or email.... Sunnybabaspirit@yahoo.com
