Datsun Roadster & Fairlady Leaf Spring Pad Sets AFTERMARKET USA
(Set of 8). These are the insulating pads that reside in between your multi-layered leafs. Enough pads are supplied to do 2 leaf springs. Has raised indexing nub to register to the dimple in the spring. Nub is integral with a thin pad like the original to space the leaf from one another and provide the proper contact area. Correct size for the Roadster dimpling and correct width!
Saves the day when you are having your old springs re-arced or powdered coated and the original pads become lost, damaged, missing in action or just plain junk! Check out the 3rd photo of the original 40 year old parts.
Two styles available. Round and Hexagon.
Round - Order by PART# 2143R
Hexagon - Order by PART#2143S.NOTE:Hexagon version. Mount with parallel edges flush to the edge of spring.
Same price for either set.
NOTE: The raised ridge, on both sets shown, that fits into the cup of the spring shown is .932 in diameter. Through the years some Nissan springs had this size and some were smaller in diameter around .890. You can reduce the diameter of the pads by using a drum sanding disc made by Dremel around the circumference or remove the ridge completely and fixing in place with epoxy on one side only.
Measure yours prior to ordering.
