I just finished a rebuild of my '49 3100 front end. I completed about all
there is to do to the front but replace the springs. Mine have the same
problem but I don't want caught short of money through the winter. They also
bottom against the frame over bumps they shouldn't. Have found them in JC
Whitney for $75.00 per spring, and that's about as cheap as I can find. I
don't think that they can do their job without some arc to "spring" against.
Hope this has helped.
