I don't remember a specific post, but you can use brass strips to make your own "working" leaf springs.

Here are some brass items I've been working on for a TearDrop trailer.

Machined Aluminum Specialties carries a working leaf suspension kit. It's not too difficult to put together, but it is a bit generic as it may not suit all models. You'll want to check under Photoetched Detailing Components to find the leaf spring kit.

I built one in a '55 T-Bird about 10 years ago------this was my first attempt at a fully working suspension. ;)

M.A.S. no longer takes online orders, you'll have to call them or drop them a line. :lol:
