I can\'t believe JKS

I just got off the phone with JKS and I can't believe the type of services I just received.
Here is the story:
I purchased pair of heavy duty spring plate from M.O.R.E about a year ago, because my rear shock mount kept breaking on me. Today, I was informed that stud that screw into the plate has plays on it and it should be replace. So I called M.O.R.E for replacement parts, then I was been told to call JKS. Plus, M.O.R.E's sales rep told me that this item has been discontinuted [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img]. Okay, I called JKS and what I was been told is to send the sping plate back for repair. I was willing to give them my credit card number and have the replacement send to me first (so, I wouldn't end up with taking trains to work for 2 weeks while waiting for spring plate to be return) [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img]. Instead, he told me "we stopped making rear spring plates for Jeep Wrangler, and its due to low sale volume!". And he said maybe its most likely that stud wasn't tight and cause the free play to occure. I told him "you need to take a test run on NYC's highway and see what I'm talking about (especially, BQE and Cross Bronx expressway)". Edlebrock's shock lasted longer than spring plate, go figure! and Edlebrock is honoring their limited lifetime warranty on their IAS shocks. Man, I feel sorry for anyone who purchased spring plates from either M.O.R.E or JKS. I should have purchased from Currie, at least they are still making their units (maybe they have better units than JKS).

Re: I can\'t believe JKS

You talk about it having a stud in it, why not just have it welded up? The ones on the cjs are welded to the plates, are the wrangler ones totally diferent? I havent stared at one long enough to know the difference..

It's as close to a 1ton as it can get and still be a jeep!!! Gotta love it!!

Well, that's funny [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]. That is exactly what I had done to my Jeep last night, I took it to the shop and asked them to spot welded around the studs. I just hope the stud won't break on me in the future [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img].
But my point is that, JKS should have kept some in their inventory (spring plate that is).
