Long story short.....me and my buddy piled into his stock (+31" BFG A/Ts, disconnected sway bar) '89 toy Pickup this last Saturday, and went up to the Iron Range OHV Recreational Area with the North Shore Wheelers for an awesome day of wheeling.



unfortunately, we live in the midwest, so we made it through one obstacle, and this happened (and no, I'm not talking about the body):

so, we wound up riding with one of the other members. on much more difficult trails than I ever would have tried with a stock yota (or anything with less than 2 solid axles :eek: )

i like the thread warning... good pics. actually that is fairly common with those springs. usually after they are up front and improper bump stop placement, which allows them to bend in a negative arch. it happens on this coast also from time to time.
