Im trying to remove my leaf springs.
I could get the rear off and the bracket off that is in the center
attaching it to the axle housing.
i cannot seem to get the bolt out of the front (under drivers side)
is it pressed in after tighting the nut was fun to get off but i cannot drive the bolt out.
i have the back off and the spring is free from the axel so ther is no pressure on it.
also the rear swivels that the spring attaches to (2 of them )
i can get one of them out but the other one ( closest to the trunk pan)
does not seem to clear the trunk pan.
does the seal on the other side have to come off to allow it to tip lower ???
hope this makes some sense
