    Coils with leaf springs. Coils without limiting straps. Coils without propery upper and lower centering mounts.

    Front leaf springs with revolvers.

    I'm not certain, but that steering doesn't look quite kosher either. I'd need another picture to be certain though.

    There's something weird going on with the body mounting too...

    they are terible for a lightwieght pickup from what i hear. Going down hill they will unload and lounch the rear perty good. I have heard that they are what the Nissan Xtera guys use since theres not much for those rigs and they work becouse of the wieght.
