You may have heard of the old saying, “They don’t make them like they used to anymore!”
In part, this is quite true when it comes to the automotive industry. Earlier cars were considered a luxury for only the rich, and they weren’t mass-produced on the level that they are today. Resources were plenty and the demand for such vehicles for those who could afford it was substantial, but for today’s numbers, the ownership of classic cars are still quite low.
As a result, the materials used back then were heavier, bulker, and today—expensive! What’s more, when it came to the smaller parts of the vehicle like the suspension system, inventors were still in the earlier stages of discovering what makes up a smoother ride—and in essence, still are today!
The Challenge of Finding Replacement Parts
Whether you want to refer to these earlier cars as old or classic, the truth somewhat remains that indeed, they don’t make them like they used to! So for car collectors and classic car owners who may have received their treasure through an inheritance, an auction, or the sheer luck of stumbling upon it in a junkyard, chances are you’re probably having a challenge finding replacement parts for your leaf spring.
The chances are quite slim that you’ll find leaf springs for a classic car at your local automotive store. Even if you’ve gotten by with combing junkyards for parts, when it comes to classic cars, you won’t have much luck. Even if you contacted the manufacturer, the response that you’ll most likely get is that particular model is obsolete and yes, they don’t make them anymore!
So if the manufacturer doesn’t make leaf springs for their earlier models, and finding replacement parts makes finding a needle in a haystack look easy, what exactly are your options? You could, like most ex-classic car owners, scrap the parts out and sell the material, or you can call New truck Spring, a leaf spring replacement and manufacturing company in New Century, KS.
