How about a picture of the new buckets? My coils pop out when I flex mine and I haven't come up with a solution that I like yet.

Hmm. That sucks, I was hoping for ideas. My coils ripped out of the buckets on my first test. But it wasn't just flex it was a lot of front wheel hop. I guess I'm back to trying to figure it out for myself.
