Anyone know where to get cheap springs or a good alternative?

I need to convert a dozer blade to a trip blade, looing for cheap springs. My son's knucklehead friend must've been plowing with 4wheeler in 5 gear when he hit something, I can even see stress marks in the blade on the front where the mounts are welded to the back not to mention I have to rebuild the whole mount assembly.....teenagers!! :wallbanging: Even bent the 5/8" pin for the swivel on the balde....yea, he was flying!

 

I was thinking maybe trampoline springs, I can get some local really cheap, even had a 4 if 2 aren't strong enough.

 

 

Thanks

I have some from a Power king blade.They are 12" and pretty stout.2 would be more than enough.

My TSC is pretty lame on bigger springs. Closest I got to seeing a good one is for stretching of high tenisle electric wire fencing.

It WILL take a stouter spring, get those PK ones above! Too weak and blade flops for the simplest strain, even a big snow pile. My auto store has Plow parts for the big trucks in a section, but not sure if one would be SMALL enough there, made for the big trucks.

I bought a set of Sears trip springs for the Ford blade. They were more than adequate. Not sure if I can find the part # for them, but I'll look around.

Local Lowes has a good assortment of springs, I don't know what these are rated but you could always double them up. Not as nice as the ones Kenny linked.
