This weekend was my first real hardcore run to test out the new SAS. Our local club, the Inland Empire Four Wheelrs took a bunch of Hammers Newbies (myself included :newbie: ) up Aftershock. Holy freaking cow , this was some awesome wheeling! This trail was a lot harder than anything I have ever run before with several breakages (mostly Jeeps), but I did have some problems as well, with my powersteering pump either taking a dump or there is a leaky hose, my freaking t-case is leaking again, but the most frustrating was my front leaf springs. Now I run 7 leaf waggy springs no bump stops with 12 inch bilstein 5100s and the Hammers ate them up and spit them out for breakfast. My passenger side spring is all S shaped :flipoff1: and on the driver's side, I landed on rock near the shackle and it bent the freaking spring! :flipoff2: For those of you contemplatng the J.C Whitney waggy springs, don't do it :banghead: . They are not military wrapped which probably makes them flex pretty well, but they can't take the hits. For $216 shipped, I probably should have invested in some Marlin or All-Pro springs. Oh well, just thought I would share my experience.
