I can't imagine a leaf spring to be so troubled and professionals so incapable of finding a fault. ANY problem should be easily determined by the simplest of mechanical intellects. The, going to the next level of investigation is so common in the industry. After a few times of going higher and higher you may actually get to a person who knows something about semi elliptical leaf springs. They are a complex item. Even used more than 130 years ago, so people/someone might have them sussed by now.

Mu mechanic has worked it out and I've told them over n over again.
The first rep denied everything even though his own mechanic told me that they knew there was a problem

Then I got a replacement set of the same Springs which where the problem anyway so nothing had changed
But now I gotta go to another tough dog rep so they can throw their 2 cents in.
I just want it fixed n I Wanna stop havin to pay for the inconvenience especially when it's not my fault

The top leaf isn't retained properly and it just slaps around

The carrier leaf was actually wearing away from movement on the safety leaf
That's y I put tht rubber bump stop in to try stop it

Gmax mate , I would at least go and talk to Ray at Morwell Spring Works
There has been plenty of problems / issues with ARB / OME suspension.
It took bloody months to get mine sorted

It's a long story if you go search through the suspension thread you should be able to read all about it .

I wanted a GVM upgrade when I bought the Ute and ARB were the only ones doing one at the time
or I would of got my suspension done at Morwell.

He can do a Lovells GVM upgrade now for the Dmax , but if all you want is a better setup without a GVM , he will use the original springs add a leaf or 2 , depending on how much weight you intend carrying.

Its best to fit all the crap , Bars , Winch , 2nd battery all the stuff you intend to carry camping on a trip and then take it to him .
