Default I think those springs were shot!

Stink bug 40

Thanks to Ige, the rears are finished. She had a handful of bushings she donated to the cause. Does anyone have six (6) stockish bushings laying around. I need six more to do the fronts.

So Downey springs really do suck. I ran them because I had them laying around. These must be made by Pinnacle.

Before and after one trip to work and back.
