    ...might be excessive if this happens: ;)

    Found those in the process of replacing my old front springs with 3" TC HDs; bushings were 3 years old, probably from the batch that everyone kept breaking back then...

    3 broken on the driver's side, one on passenger side. Driver's side springs were also a bit bent. Maybe my truck is telling me to loose weight?

    Thread on the center pins is too short on the new springs to get the pack tight, and of course I don't have that size die. Also, since the size of the pin is reduced outside ot the thread area (as in less metal for the die to cut a thread...), methinks I might be better off to get grade 8 allen head bolts and locknuts...
