Maybe remove u-bolts and jostle the spring around. Who am I kidding. I'm 49, bad shoulder, kids too young to mow grass let alone wraunch on an old truck with old dad. Maybe just drop the skidder. Thwn I'll see rust onnthe straps. Next month truck frame is rolled out and I'm begging wife to tell a sad story to Chip Foose so he'll finish what I started.
