I saw that too. I shook my head and kept scrolling on past,,,,,,

 

We do do something similar on the Mokes though the coil over spring is only very light (50 lb/in), though I moved on from that to Air long ago. We do this to give them more load carrying capacity, but this,,,,,,

This just shows a fundamental lack of understanding of what they need to achieve, some people should cut their tools in half so they fit in the bin better.

I add here too, when I was running the coil overs, although only 'lightly' sprung, when empty, the ride was horrible, really really horrible, part of the reason I went to air.

People do not need their tools destroying they need better education.The ability to see good advice from bad advice only comes from education and experience.I watch some you tube channels and am disappointed at how much misleading advice they show.The advice from an old coffin dodger like me is nothing compared to the internet.Hopefully the builder will learn from his experience,certainly I learned from some dodgy things the youthful me did.Steve..

Maybe Mercedes F1 should look into this to solve their porpoising issue...

...or maybe they already did!

The underseal looks good, so a rotting body shell is unlikely to be the cause of the crash.
