    Default Broken Leaf Spring = Drive Shaft Cleaner!



    This happened a couple of months ago. To make a long story short, I did some 4- wheeling and then some weeks later I noticed that my Jeep was sagging a little in the back corner. Found out that not only the first full-length spring had broke, but rotated about 90 degrees and was almost scraping the driveline! At least it was an easy fix.

    Curious.

    I wonder how much longer it would have stayed wedged?

    Glad it was an easy fix!
