Use the jack to lift up the axle, then lower it down a little bit off of the jack stands, to give you enough room to access the bolt in the middle of the leaf spring pack.

Unbolt that bolt, using the 3/8-inch ratchet and socket and an open-end wrench. Feb 17, removing bushing on leaf spring. Discussion in 'Suspension' started by brelandt, Feb 16, Post Reply.
