Re: Where can I get teflon leaf spring liners?
I bought mine at a local spring shop. They called it "felt". It looks like black hotwheels track, you know, with a ridge on each side. Of course you have to tell them how wide your springs are. I belive you really only need about 6-8" at each end, as that's where the sliding mostly occurs. It has a tendency to work it's way out over time.
The factory stuff has a nipple molded into it, and that drops into a hole punched in the spring ends. The OME stuff has a hole in the nipple thru which you can shoot some grease. Sound like a good design.
The stuff I bought was inexpensive. I don't believe it was teflon, as I've worked with teflon piston liners and the teflon was a lot harder. Seems to be holding up fine anyways after a number of years of use. I trust our local spring shop would use good materials.
