      Well i was painting my drums and calipers and saw this, the only things in the back were my sub, and a small box that holds my roadside stuff.

      1- is this normal?

      1A-or normal for 12 year old springs?

      2-is it safe?

      thanks charlie

      i just thought that there should be a little more curve in them, b/c there is only 125lbs-ish in the back so it is no where near over loaded

      I have to agree, you have jacked the curve out, they will flex back when it is sitting on it's own.

      ??? is that jack on the shock mount/spring perch, or the axle tube ????

      alright its ok, good.

      as for the jack its on the spring plate seen on page10-15 fig.17.4 in Haynes
      the plate that the u bolts go into. that is the right place,

      and yes the parking brake was on and i had a choke behind the other wheel, if i was going to work on something i would use a jackstands :thumbsup:
