As previously documented back in August the 250 got some new leaf springs, shocks, wheels, tires. My regular travels are very short, maybe a couple of miles and I have a company vehicle 2 weeks out of every month. So while it’s been a while since I did all that suspension work the miles weren’t many.

Driving home yesterday I noticed some peculiar suspension clunking. Nothing too crazy, just an odd knock over bumps. Previously the sway bars had liked to work their nuts loose and add some clonking.

Holy shit was this not the case. 4 of my 8 u-bolt nuts were finger loose. They got cranked down and every other nut and bolt got checked. But damned if that wasn't a scary realization. So Oppo, please go check your nuts.
