Can it be repaired? The only other way is to replace the outer tub which costs hundreds of $$$, not thats a lot nowadays but could we repair it? It would save my client so much money being that they're not doing too well right now..... machine works fine asides from that......

If it just cut through the plastic, you might be able to make an insert of some type to hold the spring. Something like a grommet for a tarp.

Or, cut a proper size piece conduit or copper pipe, flair one end, make some relief cuts on the non-flared end so you can flair it out by bending it with plyers or channelocks. Then epoxy the hell out of it to hold it in place.

Let us know if you work something out.

Just went by today and come to find out, the shock failed under the tub and caused the suspension spring hook to rub through the attachment point on the outer tub. Customer repaired the suspension spring attachment point on this own. I'm bringing back the shocks tomorrow since my AHOLE parts counter is STILL closed for New Years.
