I have recently replaced my front and rear springs on my 69 camaro. Just wondering if it's worth it to list them in the classifieds or not. The fronts are for a V8 car and the rears are monos.

The repo leaf springs do not look the same as the originals.
Someone may want your rears - not much value to the fronts.

If they are cheap - I would buy them.
I have passed at the junk yard, because they take time to get off.
But yours are already loose. ;)

Used to be - not so much anymore.
EVERYTHING IS GONE NOW. Very sad . :mad:

Up untill 2003, there was a place here called Baileys Camaros -
he had 40 or so wrecked 1st gens and Firebirds. he was expensive, but he had a lot of stuff.
He retired -and crushed everything
(I got what I could -it happened real fast)

Recently - about 8 months ago.- There was a 67 Firebird
I pulled the spiral shocks :D the radio, a bunch of other A/C stuff.
I wanted the mono leafs, because i had put replacements on my 67 pacecar
back in the 90's - I just threw away the originals :eek:

But it just was not worth laying on my back in the mud, and cutting all the bolts off - so I left them.

I always wanted a set just to have with the car, in case I ever restored her.

Finally bought a set last week from gotsnappy here on TC. threw them in up my attic.
He shipped them to me, and they were very clean - no mud :rolleyes:

No -- for the most part the days of finding old cars in the junk yards are gone - I am starting to realise that fact.

A shame really.
