Bad Leaf-springs??

EDIT: I just wanted everyone to know that as soon as I made All-pro aware of the problem they fixed it immediatly. They sent me a new leaf pack free of charge. I'm very happy with how this situation was handled.

I bought some a set of the all-pro expedition springs just a few months ago. My truck was on a lift the other day and the suspension was at full droop.

Here's what I saw:

The right side looks normal


The left side....... this doesn't look good to me. The left side of my truck also sits lower than the right by about an inch.... (and I think it might be more than just a driver side lean)

Should I not be worried about this?

You should be pissed about it.

Did they give you L and R springs?

I think I remember someone else on here having a similar issue, and I can't rememebr if it was with Allpros.

Occasionally, people get a bad spring. Double-check that they gave you the correct springs for both sides, then call them. And sugar works better than vinegar with customer service, so don't be a Dick unless they aren't helpful at first. Then go full Dick and pull out the TW card.

Haven't seen that yet.

All-Pro does have a 1-Year warranty on the leafs so essentially they should be replaced!

I think you're right.

Silas, you weren't jumping this thing, were you? Not getting all James Bro on us, right?

Silas,

Give me a call in the morning. The spring does look bent and it is a warranty issue for sure. If you get my message i left for you soon give me a call back if you want to give me a call on the number you sent the picture to and i can give you a bit of information since i will be out of the office here shortly. Just let me know so we can get this handled for you.

Hi, Kurtis, I did get your message and tried calling back after I got off work, but I think I just missed you. I shall call in the morning when I get a break in between classes. Thanks a lot!
