Posies Super Slide Springs 1002 Front Spring, 48 Inch Axle, 1 In Drop

Achieve a smoother, more comfortable ride with Posies Super Slide™ springs for 1928-1934 Ford front ends. The ends of the spring leaves of a Super Slide™ spring have a unique "dimple" shape that retains a moly-nylon button. This button works as a dry lubricant and stops leaf-to-leaf interference. This freedom from friction lets the spring move more easily, thereby giving a softer, quieter ride.

  • Reversed eyes for a 1" drop
  • Get your ride lower without sacrificing ride comfort
