Default Oops!!!

So I was driving my truck home from work today and I heard this bang. I let off the gas and nothing seemed wrong. So I continued on my way home. I get out of my truck and WOW my truck had aquired the most severe Ranger lean I have ever seen. I crawled under it and found this..... Evidentally the bang was my spring hitting the bottom of the bed.



Now I have a new spring hanger on the way and an excuse to finally install my lift shackles.

That is one pretty bad case of the rust. Would pressure washing the underside after winter help with this? Makes me wonder what other bolts, nuts and steel pieces are about to break off.
