Hey all, Just a question...I am currently working on my SB and when I pulled rear fender off, I noticed that the spring plate was pretty rotted. So can it be replaced just by itself? Am I getting into something else that I don't know about if I do replace it?

Thanks,
Gards

A rotted spring plate? They're made of pretty high quality stuff, never seen one rust. Are you sure you don't mean the torsion bar cap? These can rust away, but aren't har to replace. Post a pic if you can.
