FS Spindle accessory return springs

Post by Toddman » Fri Mar 22, 2019 9:27 pm

I have another Pair of these Accessory Spindle return springs. NOS item. I've never installed these so not 100 percent sure how they mount. There a pretty strong little spring. Size is 3 3/4" overall long x about 3/4" wide. $22 for the pair includes 1st class shipping in US.

Downloaded this photo some time ago (from MTFCA?) showing how someone mounted the tie rod springs. Assumed to be correct. Hope it helps you sell them

I think they were originally sold as tie rod “anti-rattlers”, but they also put a little “bind” on the tie rod and spindles that might be helpful in reducing or eliminating shimmy issues on cars with 21” tires if the kingpins, bushings, spindle arm bushings, and tie rod pins are in reasonably good condition.
