It explains some of the clunking I've been hearing and the wild left turns I've been having. I think it's been tweaking itself back and forth for a while now. The spring came out last week, everything looked fine. I put it back in... And Litterally while driving in the drive through I heard CLA-BANG! And boing boing boing the 4 blocks back to my house lol

There is no possible way for the spring to fall out driving through a drive through, If it was in place to start with.

I have no front sway bar in so I always lean. I know for a fact the spring was in before I left 100%. It was the first time I drove it in a week. I heard the crack at the drive through of the rear sway bar snapping and drove home with real sick body rolls only on left turns. Unless it actually came out when I got home. We have this totaled Chevy cavalier in the driveway that's getting towed to the junkyard today. We've been ramming into it for the past week and a half. Could it have happened then? I hit it pretty damn hard

If its a rear spring, and you have a 3 in bb with no coil bucket it could fall out, but would still need to be unloaded to get it over even the 1/4 ledge molded into most bb blocks.

I guess it could be possible it came out wheelin and landed in a spot that would still feel like normal and I just didn't notice. Or could it be possible the broken swaybar caught the spring and yanked it out? Or when it broke it just kicked it from its original not in the right place spot? Because I'm sure if the spring was sitting like that when I left the house I would have known! It's rubbing on the tire!

Fixed the O rings on the fuel pressure regulator and now it doesn't leak gas and fires right up instantly every time! Total cost was 2.58! So happy because a new regulator is over 100 bucks. Totally worth the effort.

If you have proper coil buckets there is no way to knock them out of the bucket without flexing to take the weight off. That sway bar broke on a good flex, most likely letting that side drop and fall off the bucket. When you leveled it out it put all the weight on part of your chassis, but not in it's correct location. When you hit a bump the spring popped to another location and started rubbing a tire. Bruiser did this on the last atv run, I drove it to a ravine, flexed it again, and put it back in. Took that pic 30 sec after putting my left rear coil back in.
