- - Spring swap...
06-25-2013 06:03 AM
So, I pushed the button on Ebay last night for a pair of 18/60 springs for $110 shipped. :D Currently I have 14/57's. Thinking about doing the install and from what I read, I simply disconnect the sway bar links and the bottom of the shocks from the lower control arms and lower the axle down to decompress the springs. Question though, I've read some posts about the axle shifting? How do I minimize the chances of this? What is the physics involved if in essence it all bolts back up to the same locations, how does it "shift" in mid flight?

Just as you stated only, shock and swaybar, and brake line where the bracket bolts to render well on front and on back there is a loop they go through! Do not touch the controller arms or anything else and will be ok. Just have to shove the axle down pretty hard.
Youtube is your friend... :D Thanks. I think I'll tackle the project. Pretty straight forward.

The higher rated springs are still within factory tolorences, so you shouldn't have axle shift.

So springs are in and planning on the swap for Sunday. Does anyone if I need a torque spec for the lower shock tower and/or the sway bar link? Any easier preference for the top or lower end of the sway bar link? Was just going to unbolt the bottoms of each, one wheel at a time.
