It's me again this time I finally got that 75 squared away got everything working.  Finally got the transmission into neutral and everything was fine.  Driving it I noticed it was swaying all over the place.  I thought it was the front end.  Knew I hadn't done anything to it.  I jacked it up tonight to put it on rollers and I looked at the fiberglass TRW spring had split wide open barely hanging together.  What would have caused that to break like that.  So now do I stay with fiberglass or go back to a spring.  It is not a race care it only goes to car shows.  Please let me know because I don't want to buy another fiberglass one and it does the same thing.  Thanks Dean

You could always check with the vendor that sold it to you and see if they have any recommendations.

Buy another one.  That was the best upgrade I did to my '81 with the gymkhana spring....it's almost 30 yrs old
