1988 E250 Clubwagon Front Coil Spring Seats? Where to find them?

A while back, I replaced my front coil springs. While I did that, I also replaced the stock coil spring seats with these:



After several thousands of miles, I realized the new style isn't the best quality, nor was it close to the same. The original was something like a thicker plastic with a seat for the end of the coil. This newer inferior one is thin plastic that doesn't stop the coil from spinning. I'm looking for the older style. Does anyone know where to find that? I don't have a picture of the older style.

annaleigh has a good reputation on FTE.annaleigh has a good reputation on FTE.annaleigh has a good reputation on FTE.
used those on my 88 E150 and the end of the spring just ate them up...
The originals on my 88 E150 look much like a piece of material you might find in the sidewall of a tire... I had never looked these up before and was going to see if i could make one out of a tire..
Well tried to post a link but for some reason it was not working. Part # E8UZ-5414-A
I found them at Fordpartsgiant.com I have never bought from them but they have a great look up page.

Part # E8UZ-5414-A = 1988/2001 (and probably later) E150/350 (my microfiche parts catalog only goes thru 2001).

I found them at Fordpartsgiant.com I have never bought from them but they have a great look up page.
Available from Ford = MSRP each: $23.62 ~ autonationfordwhitebearlake.com online price each: $15.59.

The online parts catalog is the same for all, but the discount prices can be modified.

AFAIK: Auto Nation Ford in White Bear Lake MN has the best online prices, dealer net cost +10%
