Re: An Idea for spring rollers

no, they will get distroyed, mine are cast iron and seem to hold up well. They protect well and can make the difference between getting stuck or getting over the big rock your trying to get over. Wildweasel did slightly damage one of his, dont know how he did that but it probally saved his spring hangar

Re: An Idea for spring rollers

Yea what Zooky said, I have chipped 2 of my cast ones,
but the hangers are intact. I plan on installing a set up front of my calmini like S/R on my stocker.

Re: An Idea for spring rollers

Wheels have been on backorder from our supplier for quite some time. We are currently searching for another supplier.

Here is a pic of them with my CSC kit, they actually work better with the stock spring hangar.
