My front springs finally arrived despite UPS trying their best to sabotage my plans.

Last week we replaced the spring towers and shocks and here’s where things were left.

Now for the spring removal. Easy. Unbolt the shock droop the axle and cut the old spring out.



Now grab all of the Penetrating Oil, a 1-1/8" socket and a long persuader for the end of the ratchet. Start to pulling!

Slip the new spring in place and bolt it down.

Grab a Victory beer because it only took an hour and a half start to finish.

End product should resemble this.


And the pile of dead parts will resemble this.

I’m no big city mechanic but I can say with some certitude that there was a safety issue right there!


Next up is installing this here newfangled Bluetooth song box and a transmission service!
