    help press springs

    Hi, I built a 20 ton wheel bearing press. I am looking for the extension springs for it. I have searched for hours on the web for them. I haven't had good luck. lol I am looking to buy 2. Here is a pick of a press. It is not mine. I'll take a pic of mine after I get the springs for it.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you, Dan

    Have you considered hood springs? You'd have to go to a junkyard, I suppose.

    I've checked those and they are too big. I'll be checking the junk yard this spring for hood springs.

    Thanks
