Reinforced factory spring plates were initially part of the build, but they bent while the U-bolts were being torqued. S.I. obliterated the problem by making new spring plates out of (you guessed it) chromoly plate. Two pieces of 3/8-inch plate were cut out and welded together to form the base. "Bombproof" comes to mind.
