    don't know exactly but came close to finding out one night as I was finishing up working on my Mav... I had just reached for the lever to let the lift down when I saw this...:yikes:

    don't know what happened. the arm wasn't straight back like in it's normal resting place as if I had forgotten to set it. but also don't know why it was kicked out that far from the front leaf spring mount I use as a lifting point.
    it was a little scary. after I stopped it for the pic I was a little reluctant to pull the leaver again.

    It changes depending if you got the big girls sitting in the front or the back. :D
