Yeh, axle wrap will do that...I went through 3 sets of springs, and a very stout DS on my spring over Samurai before installing a traction bar and 6 leaf wrangler springs....problem solved. I had a set of Deaver 3 inch springs on my first XJ, held up well...no spring wrap. I think there were 9 leaves in that pack...heavy duty. The current ones look like RE 3.5's with a thick, long add a leaf, and it's bending the main leaf.....hmmm

There was one of these in an XJ engine bay yesterday at PaP - it was all disassembled and I was trying to figure out WTH it was.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Put a new unit bearing on the wife's DD. I got to replace pads and rotors next on it.
Got my DD cleaned up and out too.

Went to sons ballgame Saturday. The other team did better I think.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

started building stuff in the new garage via a $100 Lowe’s gift card we got as a housewarming present

built a set of shelves:



then added a small workbench:





ran out of lumber last night, but got a good start.
