I thought the coil spring had popped out of its holder when in fact the holder has broken
free from the frame.
Is it possible to have a body shop compress the spring down enough to reweld the
bracket? The only thing holding everything in check is the shock absorber.
I was thinking of taking a large turnbuckle and hook the coil and that square hole on the
frame and tighten it down and maybe take some of the pressure off the shock?
There is also a 3/8" hole on top of the frame where I can slip a hook bolt over the coil and
tighten it down as well or would that not accomplish anything?
Option #2: Put it back on Craigslist and sell it as a parts truck? I've got $700.00 invested.
The 2.3Liter motor runs good, tranny is good and fenders and hood are in good shape as
is the box.
I bought the truck for towing my bass boat to the ramp and back as it was too much for
my Subaru Forester's transmission.
Thanks for your attention and help.
