    Do you have wheels? Precision Plus at Birchwood might fit you in, give them a call.

    No, I have done it before. Springs are springs. Same as the ones that were under stage coaches.

    Most or many Corvettes have composite springs, not something one would put in a press to alter it's geometry.
