    heres the SSM trac-bars on my old blazer. it shows what bigjsp is talking about the bumpstop on the eyelet and a u-bolt around the leaf it self. these arent the best but do some wonders for around $135 a set, 10times better than the autozone special

    and yea they hang low, i had 2inches of ground clearance with mine

    if you bend the springs back in a press they are just going to be weak in the previously bent area to end up snapping and youll probably do alot of damage... if you dont want to do a link suspension i would use a stock leaf pack and 4" blocks with the trac bars that should be much stronger than drop leafs because off all that extra mass and youll still be low

    Not too many people can brag about shredding and blowing up parts like a V8 monster can, how many imports do you know of that can say they've blown up there Diff or there tranny... and those are common for us!
    Man I wish. Im not near as quick as Yenko, YET. I'll be there soon. I sure do break and thrash stuff with the best of them. I wish I had a digi cam to do vids with. Or even a decent camcorder. If I can round up some cash, I'd like to invest in one next spring. Then capture some of our adventures. Little cross between Girls Gone wild, and street racing. :bigthumb:

    Yea some chick is sueing cause she said her privacy was violated when she lifted her skirt up. fuck that...film it, film it all!!

    heres what you should do, find a ricer with his girl, and make a bet with them, that if your old little truck beats there rice.than the girl has to take her shirt off or somthing...you'll get plenty of good camera footage that way!

    Damn, thats a hell of an idea, lol. All the ricers I've acutually lined up against took off before they caught up with me again.

    Maybe I should just cruise around looking for some ricer chicks.

    The only thing about bending them back and torching it to fix it you must remeber that spot of the leaf will be alot weaker. you will need to take it eazy till you get a perminet fix, because if you put the same or even less stress on it most likly it will bend back again or even worse SNAP.
