    Well I was just out on a dirt path screwing around in my S-Blazer tonight. THe path is fairly rutted in spots. Its very dry around here so I popped it into 4hi and was crawling through the ruts pretending I had a real Blazer:rolleyes:

    I noticed two things. The back tires REALLY stuff and droop compared to the front...

    Also my leaf springs out back seems to be sweaking now. Maybe theve always been like this but It just seems to stick out in my head now. I crawled underneath when I got back here into town and I see no visible cracks. Would it be my shocks? Im sure they are still the factorys from 96


    And yes im sure one day everyone I will do some real wheeling

    Think about how a leaf spring works, you'll find your answer :).
