    As i'm changing my oil and both sway bar end links i notice something... A BROKEN COIL OVER! To be honest, i never even felt any difference! LOL! So I need to come up with a new solution (cheaply) for my 3" front lift.

    I have the rear lifted 3" with a 1.5 AAL and a 1.5" shackle... the entire truck has 1.5"Body Lift... so thats okay... but now the front must not even have 2" of lift because of the broken SAW... I need to come up with a new cheap option to replace the front suspension.. I was thinking OME... give me your thoughts.. heres the pics...

    Holy crap dude! What did you do and why are your threads so rusty?

    In My opinion, if one went out, the other will probably do the same. Replace them both.

    SAW only offered you 40% off? Its a damn broken coil. Is there a warranty on them? That whole thing looks dangerous to drive. I'd tell them you want a new set under warranty.

    Just Buy new coils for them and have a shop put them on. Coils on their site are like 80 each so if you do both shocks thats only $160.
