new and old springs334 viewsThese are the springs and mounts, I got this set off of ebay for $175 including $65 shipping from minnesota. The other hardware required was the bolts and blue loctite. You can use the old front mount supposedly, but your milage may vary. I never did get the shackle bolts out for the rear, so having the shackles is definitely a good idea. Besides this I would also encourage you to save two of the front mount bolts from the springs and mounts when you pull them at the yard.

CP-16-100 Hydraulic Pump2174 viewsThe pump had to be rebuilt as it is a 1985 model and probably had thousands of hours on it. I sourced a rebuild kit from Florig Equipment in PA and for under $20 it was rebuilt with all new o-rings, and seals. Sorry, no pics of the actual rebuild...I forgot!
