Here is a good example of why you should  NOT buy the cheapest tires you can find.

I recently put a set of new "had a few hundred miles on another Mustang) rear leaf springs on my replica. I don't have the spring rate at the moment. but noticed that the spring on the left side has already "flattened out" by nearly 1". Could this be from rear end torque? Or faulty leafs?

 I would venture to say spring temper issue.  Good springs guys are good to know.
 eaton spring has alway been good source. and you pay a little extra but you don't need to buy 2 sets of springs before you are happy.

Maybe a better example why you shouldn't sit in chocks with a bunch of Chlorox under your only turning tire and try to impress folks with your "power".  Can't tell if anyone was injured, but he's lucky if no one got hit by the debris.
I wonder if anyone was impressed...
