    Half way through the trip. A welded fulcrum at the point where heat treated spring steal is used will not last very long.

    Not only wil it not last long, but if you have my luck it will fly out and hit the vehicle behind you. Which will be a local Deputy. In a bad mood. With a large night stick... :doah:

    it really depends on how much arch you springs have and if they dont hit the over load then maybe youll be ok , so thats no weight in the back no flexing or bumps:rolleyes:


    welding springs just dont work, put it on the hop the curb at your house and it will propably snap!

    Only one beer lasting for a couple of hours? You must be a slow drinker.
