Leaf spring bushes replacement

Post by Davidhood »

Hi All
I will be replacing the leaf spring bushes on the weekend. Just wondering if there is a certain tension for the bolts on the bushes or just tighten?
Any help or tips appreciated

And you need to lower and raise the axle and keep it level. Any twisting and it is hard to get everything to align.

I found it easiest to jack up the back end with a trolley jack under the diff and put chassis stands under the chassis. Then take the wheels off and lower the axle.

Then you can fit the bushes without fighting the tension from the springs or any twisting of the rear suspension.
