No steep descent yet, the closest thing would be the slight dip at 0:45min. I have been told of 101s becoming light at the back on steep descents and effectively becoming a 2 wheel drive for a moment... :shock:

Hi Heyitsmike,

By using it :lol:

the springs are well used and not stuck or rusted together, the original springs are very flexible when new but if the leaves are rusted or painted together and cant move independently the ride can be quite hard and lacking in the flexibility you se in the pictures.

soak the leaves in penetrating oil for a week or two, then drive over rough ground when the oil has had a chance to do its work and the springs will start to free up, you will notice the ride on road is much smoother as well.

Les
