    I replaced my OEM leaf springs with a new leaf pack. The old ones are sitting in my garage and I'm trying to figure out what I should do with them. I'm looking to see what others have done with their old springs.

    Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    if they're tsb springs and in good shape, there are probably plenty of folks on here (including me) that might be interested in buying them

    No TSB on them... my truck had 37k mile on it when I bought it, so I wasn't eligible.

    Depending on where you live - there might be a HUGE market for springs.

    I know the jeep guys around here who've gone SOA - are always looking for stock springs.
