    Almost got in an accident yester day, had to swereve off the road into a farmers field, got some good air in the process just hoping over the ditch, ever since my leafs had been squeaky, soon realized that the jump had caused the springs to seperate in areas they never seperated befor, just took a crowbar and used it to slightly pry each spring apart from the other while I sprayed some rust check 3000 inbetween the springs and presto no more squeak, I know that squakey leafs are an on going issue for some people so I figured I'd post about this, its pretty straight forward on what to do but I can take pictures of process if people want it!

    Glad your ok!

    and we won't tell anyone.... you know you were just doing doughnuts in the field and got busted..... "really officer, I had to swerve off the road and into the field to avoid that cow (that doesn't exist) and then there were these birds so I swerved again....... so you see it just looks like figure 8's all over his field..." :D
