??? ::) When you go to do the back take some pics of the process, I think that will help clear things up. ;)

Any ideas how this will hold up?? Will this sag back down in a few months? Just wondering how durable it will be.

If new leafs last like 10-20years, like they normally do and
my custom forged leafs hold up like 5-10 years then I'll say so what?? It's definately worth it, and it does not cost you anything... Yes it's easier to buy some new leafs but so what?? I like mine and I'm happy with the result, I'd say that everyone should try this first and only after that tell that it didn't work or something... You'll never know for sure. ;)
I wasn't knocking it, just wondering how it would hold up! Actually I wish I had thought of it!! Hell If it lasts a year I think you are money ahead.

So where are the pics with the meats on?

I'm not knocking you either I'm just interested in how it was done. If it looks like it would be easy enough I may try it myself.

Juha, you are an animal. that looks great.

Guys, I think he forgot to mention an important part of the process, which is being immensly strong (Juha is a strongman competitor in Finland, and he's a big fella) ;D

I'm still waiting for the pics of those new meats and maybe some close-ups of those springs.

Juha, He's talking about your new tires. Some of the slang just doesnt translate right, does it.
