    How many times have you inverted your springs? I'm terrified that I'm going to break my 64s... everyone around here seems to want top dollar for them.

    I need to swap out an axle joint, change wheel bearings/races on one side in the front, and some other small shiat and I'm good to go. Are YOU ready? :D

    They get inverted everytime I go out. I bent them both right near the rear eye at Blazer Fest...I think just about any spring would have bent under the circumstances though. A 7 minute , balls to the wall, hammer down run through the tank trap broke both stock upper shackle bolts in the front, and bent both rear 64's a bit. The shackle bolts have since been replacced with larger 9/16" bolts. And I'm gonna head to the junkyard before next months 'Con run and find another set of 64's.

    Ah, I set mine to run out of shackle before they invert. But, they still get pretty twisted in the front half.
