View Full Version : Broke that mother f***** clean off (NOW FIXED)

02-18-2007, 06:59 PM
well went up postill today to watch a buddy test his truck out and we both ended up broke. he broke a u joint on the front shaft and i tore the coilspring bracket off my frame wich made for a lowrider.
here are the pics.
the u joint was replaced and we blocked my truck up so i could drive it out to the road and put it on the trailer
first time that truck has gone home under someone elses power[16]

jamed duff progressive rate spring's 66-77 EB coil buckets shortend 2 inches
its very soft now the coils have a spring rate of 200-370. I had to turn my shocks up half way home on the first ride, but it sure rides nice. pics at the end of the first set. there is one in there of my neighbours willies that use to have a tree growing through the center of it.

Jake, were you in Westbank fixin your truck this mornin? Think I drove passed on my way home for lunch. Was gonna stop and say hi but wasn't sure it was you

02-19-2007, 06:02 PM
i work in wb i run the pennzoil shop on the corner

02-19-2007, 08:51 PM
yep, that's where I saw your truck

02-20-2007, 02:05 PM
cool........still havent done shit to it im kinda trying to turn a blind eye to it for a couple of days so i'm not trying to rush it back together.
I am putting peogressive rate jame duff coils in it now and 66-77 coilspring buckets for some extra beef.
my coil rate will now be 200-370 instead of 257 so it will be a little softer and a little stiffer. It should be cool

02-20-2007, 05:55 PM
That green Explorer parked on the side is great!! Love to do that to mine once I get it up and runnin' and give my hubby back his bronco
