national springs question?

I finally raamped my 70 bronco and was surprised at how i was able to stuff the rear 35" tire. I run 5.5" lift (3.5 11 leaf national + BC Rockers). I actually flatten out the spring and had my tail pipe almost on the ground. Anyone have any input on how the national springs will hold up to this abuse? This is my second set of national springs the first set I wore out and they sagged. PS I did like the results of the ramp, so you guys that were there thanks for the helpl

my old springs were 10 leafs and were just used lightly. I'm concerned about stress issues on the sping and the related components. what should I keep my eye on during the visual pre examine I do before I take on the trail

I have the same set up but 37"s and they have been going now for 3-4 yrs. I carry alot extra weight and have been happy with the springs so far.

I run the 3.5" lift ones right now, and have some 5.5" ones on the way so I can clear 37's. They better hold up well considering what you pay for two springs!
