Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2018: Leaf springs grooves

When I disassembled my rear spring on a 26 coupe I noticed that the upper leaves had worn the lower leaves, I'm guessing probably less than 1/32. what would youse recommend ie: grind them smooth, replace the springs or don't do anything. Thanks

Grind the upper leaf so it's a "ski tip" and smooth the top of the lower leaf, don't think you have enough wear to cause grief. You don't have to take much off the upper leaf tip, just enough so it doesn't "dig" into the leaf below it.

I've already done that to the upper surface.
