This would have been uncompressing the leaf spring, and recompressing it backwards, wouldn't it? Seems to me that it would have had to have taken a direct shot to the hanger to move like that.

jky - not sure how it has happened? but it has been over some pretty big bumps. I think your have understood my description right - if I have understood the assembly correct. I think I might have to get a torch out and go crawling around under the boat to see if I can get a better understanding.
