Trust me I dropped the axle wayyy down. Maybe a sprig compressor wasn't 100% necessary but it definitely helped a bunchFrshmt said:I don't know why you'd need a spring compressor to get the springs back in- disconnect sway bars, shocks, and brake line brackets and the axle drops more than enough to pop the springs in and out.
The soapy water on the rear spacers is a good tip, though. I always put the factory isolators on the bottom side of the aftermarket spacers. In the rear the spacers will literally pop into the upper spring buckets. Just hit the top side with soapy water and twist while you push. No big deal.
Ha nice. I like the techniquesFrshmt said:I always leave the tires on- helps to pull down on the axles. Additionally, it gives a surface to lean against to gain extra clearance… and I'm fat, so getting to put my body into it makes a huge difference.
