after hearing of newarks mishap and having the same issue happen here, I think i should alert everyone of a very serious problem. four years and 45k miles after the rear springs were replaced , The front u bolts broke on the rear springs allowing the rear axle to twist out of its holders ,breaking driveshaft ;air hoses;bending shocks. The bus was traveling at 15 mph when this accured ;pulling up to a stop. I would urge everyone to inspect\replace any u bolts of question with oem u bolts if posible tightend to the proper specification
