Old thread I know, but a search didn't turn up anything.

Does anyone sell the CORRECT slider (or silencer), part number 3935737.  Four required per side, 8 total.
The kit that heartbeat city sells looks like the correct clamps and rivets, but not the sliders.

The ones in the hbc kit look like the ones I got from Eaton DS.

If no one makes the correct part, any chance anyone has some extras?  I need 2, but would like to have 4.

Yep, http://www.eatonsprings.com/tipinsertsreboundclipsubolts.html
Part #33C133 2"X2.5" oblong cup $0.95 each
Bad part is you will get nailed on shipping. Why HBC sells that kit and states the spacers are exact except for the nib I'm not sure.

Yes, shipping was $15 and some change.  Only choice is fedex ground to a residence, even though I am having them shipped to my office.   Option of priority mail for 6 bucks would be nice.  Oh well.

Seems like hbc would get a supply of these to sell with that kit.  All the vendors sell lots of part that are "exact".  Problem is most are not exact.

Here are the springs I purchased. I was expecting them to look more like new metal. Like media blasted, but these are supposed to be correct. I have seen so many pictures of restored cars, that have a much lighter grey finish. Are the ones I have correct looking. They seem to have some kind of a thin grease coating on them. I purchased these locally, and I think they came from D & R classics.

The reason you see different colors on restored cars? Everybody and their brother has tried to duplicate the blue/grey color of original springs. You finally get something you can live with and call it a day. We probably mixed 20 pints of paint trying for a color. The only thing that jumps out at me is you are missing a retainer on the mid rear section of the springs. Mine has 3 where you only have 2. Mike keep in mind I have 5 leaf springs and that maybe the difference. Somebody with 4 leaf setup will let you know

The four leaf springs only have two rebound clamps each.
