You need to be careful with that suspension. stock expeditions are not very strong. a couple of years ago, i saw one in a parking lot being set up to be towed. the entire front right side has collapsed. i never found out if it was a broken balljoint or a broken spring.

no front springs. expeditions use torsion bars up front. on occasion, they can wear out and snap. that is probably what happened.

but just because of that one incident you saw, doesn't mean that expeditions are not very strong. there are people who wheel theirs stock, without any problems. but going up a ramp like that really isn;t putting much stress on anything. i probably put more stress on it when i did a little wheeling with it the same day

Hehe. Poor Expy.

You should shrink that pic down and replace the Expy pic in your sig with it.

Then you just have to find back your Intrepid and get it on a ramp. :p

EDIT - Wait, you still have it, don't you?

Well, technically, a torsion bar [b]is[/i] a form of spring And what I meant by expys not being strong is that they're not built for any serious offroading.

On a side note, I've just noticed, at first glance, that dude looks as if he's pissing on the truck!

Well, for once, I have to agree with Insane Driver. The location that he's holding that measuring tape is just begging for some added context...



Just kidding. :p It's all in harmless fun.
