I have a set of 18'' / 650 pound coil springs brand new in box (Eibach) if anyone is interested.

They should fit a normal 8'' coil over. Freakin' all poo modified coil overs are not true 8'' coil overs, more like 6.5-7'' travel coil overs with whatever they had done to them, so these would not fit without putting more preload on them then I want to.

I am by no means an expert fabricator or welder, but if those were my leaf springs I would clamping them and welding them back up.

What's the worst thing that happens, the weld fails and it goes right back to how it is now?

Worth a shot in my book to save yourself a lot of money.

Someone who knows what they're doing may come along and tell me I'm stupid, but it's an idea...

i would assume that the springs could lose their "spring" after the high heat and it would be difficult to temper them again. although that is a spot that probably doesn't technically spring, but it must flex since it broke there. maybe just try to get a replacement main leaf? i'm no fabricator by any means though so i'm just going off what i've read in the past... probably a decent temporary fix to get off the mtn but by no means a long term one

Why not just put the strike pad over the top?

If you don't already have spring perches on it probably wouldn't be too bad to modify them to run without u-bolts, but since you already have spring perches, I think it will be simpler to just add a strike pad like Jason said vvv this is what I am doing when I install my bumps.

Do they make one that is wide enough cover both the u bolts but doesn't sit super high up? I just saw it be done and thought it was pretty clean and maybe even a little safer/stronger than u bolts. apparently it can net you almost an inch of up travel too

I posted in the MT thread but no luck there yet, I'm looking to get some more ride height out of my coilovers, I have about 2 inches of preload with 13" 600# coils when I'm adjusting the preload collar it's directly behind the uca at full droop I've tried a punch and hammer but it's messing up the collar, Any help on getting a couple more turns would be appreciated thanks
