    you sure there not broken?:rolleyes:

    If you have jumped it, you should look real close at your shocks. If it was any decent height, they probably did blow out. Theres only a few shock manufacturers on the market that are designed to handle jumping, and there $$$

    if your shock is still intact, with no sign of leaking fluid, it probably hasnt blown. Springs sag naturally overtime due to weight put on them(even if you dont tow or carry anything). Leaf springs can be serviced by the manufacturer, they are usually re-arched. Not sure about shock springs though.
