Hello all,

I am thinking about converting the bungees on the landing gear to springs. Has anyone replaced the bungees on their J3 Cub with springs? If so, how do you like it? Would you convert to the spring system again or stay with the bungees? Do the springs create too much of a bounce on landing? I know Wag-Aero sells some conversions but not sure what other suppliers are out there.

Thanks in advance!
