Ok here is the request. started removing spring from pinto. Found both rear are broken. found springs. Spring pads are bad can not find them any were. Asked pinto car club not one response. Seems someone other than me has replaced rear springs and needed pads. I called about 6 dis with no luck. Any help would be appreciated.

yes and the mustang II's use them as well i messaged sal since he's into m II's... no reply back yet (probably because he's busy kicking himself, for selling his torino today Cry)

bob you need to measure the spring width and pad length as well as the button knob diameter something should fit....

Prothane covers Pinto pretty well, maybe they'd be interested in producing the rear leaf isolators?

i've seen my upholstery guy steam foam to get it to puff up and flex when fitting new vinyl cover on the foam to get it to relax and fit the seams straight, he has a wand attached to his steam pot so it can be inserted in the vinyl cover from the edge. but IDK if it would work if the foam is starting to break down and or really degraded???
