So, how bad is this...
As I've mentioned, on my buddy's 93 YJ, we did a shackle lift on it. His leafs are parallel now...entirely. When installing the front shackle lift, we did the passenger side first and when that got bolted up, the spring section ahead of the axle was actually curved...down. There is practically no curvature to the springs whatsoever, front and rear.
I keep telling him he needs to get new springs but he doesn't think it's needed. I'm worried about two things. First thing I'm not sure if this would happen or not, but could the springs break on a trail or even on the road? Second, because of what I ran into with my Fairlane's sagging (not parallel) rear leafs, I don't see him passing inspection. If situation one or two happens, the result from him will be the same...he'll b**ch up a storm.
