    Saw that, looked like something from a slapstick movie, either the centers sheared or the spindle/uprights broke, must have been a seat cover chewing moment!!!!

    Apparently they were using a new front suspension/upright set up and it would appear it didnt work! Must have separated behind where the upright ties are secured too.
    They are changing back to the old set up now..... but dont quote me on this! lol
