Was there an option of a helper spring from the factory? My rear has a set of helper springs on it which I just assumed where added later but is weird is there are factory brackets that look like stops for the helper springs.
Its weird as multiple 1/2 ton guys are saying they have the same setup. Maybe I should post the part number stamped on it and see if we can find it in a catalog? Would like to know if someone could use them as I dont need them.
My 51 Panel has the helper springs, but my 52 didn't. I searched for a set and found them on a 49 F1. The stop brackets on the 49 were a different design than on my 52. The 52s are just like on your truck.
I wouldn't mind having a spare set of helper springs, but shipping would probably be the killer.
