davidpinto:
l want to replace my leaf springs for my next project.i have been looking at past posts about new insulators .seems to be a problem with finding some.don't want to order new springs until i can locate new pads.has any body found a source ? any help would be greatly appreceated.fo r '80 model hatch.

Dtmix:
If the insulators are rubber, you may want to check with Steele Rubber. If they do not have it, they might be able to refer you elsewhere. Green Sales in Cincinnati sells a lot of NOS parts...they may be able to help. Another possibility could be with the Mustang reproduction parts as both the Mustang and Pinto shares same or similar parts. I have had good luck with Mac's.

Fingers crossed...Happ y Motoring!

davidpinto:
thanks for the reply,i have ordered from steele and greens before .i will try steele first.i found this award thing at greens.p.s. who is mac's

Dtmix:
Mac's was a family owned business that specializes in Fords, and they were brought out by Eckler's. Regardless, Macs people are still thesame as before. It is true that they now have a website that also covers GM products, as Ecklers owns those.  Those other makes are actually  diverted to other Ecklers stores. All the Fords related inquiries goes to Mac's outside of Buffalo, NY. If you scroll down to the bottom of the website, be sure to ask for a free catalog for the Mustangs to be mailed to you. It's about two to three inches thick and is an awesome resource. There are differences between the Mustang and the Pinto, but they do share a lot of the same parts. The parts people were able to advise what parts are interchangeabl e.

That salesman award is cool! How did you know they had that, as most of the time you have to tell Green Sales the part nbr or the name of item that you are seeking before they can tell you that they have it in stock?

Happy Motoring!
