Need Leaf Spring Help!!!!!!!!!
 
Okay! Got a 4" spring lift. I removed the old leaf spring on the rear passenger side and the new one does not line up!!!

The pin sticking out of the wedge is sitting about a 1/2 inch behind the hole in the plate in the axel. According to the instructions the fat side of the wedge goes towrd the front of the jeep. This is so frustarting...any help would be great!!!

Thanks in advance!!!

I won't mention that the track bar bolt on the frame rail is merely held on by only a shank since the nut and bolt head snapped off:banghead:

Sounds like the axle shifted a bit. You'll probably have to loosen the driver side and move the axle to get it to line up. And don't torque it down till you change out the driver side or you'll have the same problem.

I just did mine. 4" RC. Removed both rear springs, hooked up the new springs to the new shackles and frame mounts then set the axle where it needed to be. you may have to loosen up and push like coyote said.

J/K dont do that. try the COYOTE method.:wavey:

even tho i have a tj.. when i was doing my axle swap i had problems with lining the control arm mounts with the control arms

coyotes right, loosen the other side and line it up.. it'll make it 100x easier

Thanks guys. What I also did not know was that once you replace them to lower the jeep and they will slide right in. I snugged up the springs but still need to to the drivers side and will be aware to loosoen up the passenegr side to allow for fit.


Thanks again guys!!!
