Default Leaf Spring Liners

OK, so I have everything i need for my super flexy bastard pack, except spring liners. Where the hell can I buy a roll of 2 1/2" wide spring liner? The biggest I can find online is 2 1/4", and it has a lip so I can't use it. I'd really rather not have to pay a crazy amount of money for sheets of UHMW-PE but it's not looking good.

Anyone have a source for 2.5" wide leaf liner material?

Are you trying to do full length liners or would just tips work?

whoh, 1969 camaro has a 2.5" leaf spring? Why the hell are liners for this width so rare then lol. Thanks for the info those might work - I'd still prefer a roll though

I would assume Most of the wider leaf spring setups came with only the plastic tips as far .. And yea most light duty GM vechicles. ( Camaros, trans am, s10 etc ) had the 2.5 " leafs. Atleast that's what I've always seen under them lol. Correct me if I'm wrong lol. Yea I'd assume you'd get more out of a roll of the stuff but that kits a start anyway lol

You'll be surprised how much you use of that roll, plus if there is some left, sell it.
