They look good! I made a set without the cross brace fro my cruiser. BTW, the military wrap on spring will do the most good on the fixed end of the spring.

THE PINS ARE 9/16", IT'S A LITTLE BIT SMALLER THAN THE STOCK PINS, BUT THE CLOSETS MATCH I COULD FIND HERE, AND FINDING A GRADE 8 METRIC BOLT HERE IS IMPOSSIBLE

THEN I WILL LOOK UP AT THE SKY AND SAY "YOU WERE RIGHT JASON, YOU WERE RIGHT, AND BOW MY HEAD. :flipoff2:

AND I'M BUSY, NOT LAZY. IN THE LAST 3 DAYS I HAVE PULLED MY FRONT AXLE, TORN IT DOWN TO THE HOUSING, KNOCKED OFF THE TACKED ON PERCHES, CLEANED [WIRE BRUSHED, DE-GREASED, CARB CLEANERED AND SANDED AREAS THE WILL BE WELDED ON] [I HAD SOME PROBLEMS WITH THE OIL IN THE PORES OF THE REAR AXLE AND HAD TO CUT AN RE WELD A FEW WELDS, SO I WANTED TO MAKE SURE IT WASNT GOING TO HAPPEN AGAIN] RE LAYED OUT AND POINTED THE AXLE, AND TACKED UP THE PERCHES. ALL THAT IS LEFT IS THE FRONT SHOCK MOUNTS AND IT WILL BE READY TO BURN OUT ON MONDAY WHEN I HAVE ACCESS TO THE SHOP AGAIN. SO :flipoff2:

OH YEAH, I CUT THE KNUCKLES LOOSE TO SO I CAN TURN THEM

It is funny, when my spring broke I actually did yell into the sky "Dammit Jason!!!" Funny part is that I was not referring to myself..
:flipoff2:

Whne mine broke I was amazed at how easy it broke. No hard bash or anything. I was simply backing up in low range. Made me a believer on the spot. So I guess I get a bit dramatic about it sometimes.
Besides, I am full of Sh** ask Butch

WELL, I DRILLED MY FRONT SPING PACKS THIS MORNING SINCE THE FRONT AXLE WAS OUT. MY EXPENSIVE 5/16 TITANIUM BOSCH DRILL BIT BAUGHT FOR THIS PURPOSE WASNT HAPPY AFTER ONE SPRING. THE DRILL BIT SHARPENER DIDNT HELP MUCH. THEN IT MET MY FRIEND BENCH GRINDER :D IT CUT LIKE A BIATCH AFTER THAT!! GUESS I'LL DO THE REARS WHEN THE REAR AXLE COMES OUT AGAIN...
