Spring booster- Front- on 48 Lincoln Continental


Recommended Posts

I have an attachment that fits over the ends of the spring and has 2 adjusting bolts that attach to a circular extension spring that when tightened appears to pull the ends of the leaf spring together. Was this a common remedy for a sagging front spring? Shoud I leave it on,or look to see what the spring does when its removed?

Dear Classic Car,I might be way off base here but upon reading your post this device you have sounds like a piece of equipment that as you say pulls the ends of the spring together to take the load off the studs and MAYBE aid in spring stud removal and replacement.diz

Dear Classic, Somewhere in the deep recesses of my mind I seem to recall seeing an ad for a devise such as you describe. I believe it was touted as a helper spring for Ford products that carried excess weight or for relief of sagging springs or both. There was a turnbuckle that could be tightened up to adjust car height and an expansion spring or two that gave a boost to the stock spring. These items were after market items so would not be correct for serious

judging.
