my name is mike. there is r&r of front leaf springs. let me know if this helps you out. thanks
NOTE: The following step is for the left-hand shock only.
CAUTION: Never reuse U-bolts. The U-bolts are a torque-to-yield design and cannot be retightened. Failure to use a new U-bolt can result in loose or broken springs and suspension components.
NOTE: The U-bolts insert through the front spring cap on the left-hand side and through the axle assembly bracket on the right-hand side.
NOTE: The following step is for the left-hand shock only. The right-hand shock is similar.
NOTE: The suspension must be loaded with the weight of the vehicle before the U-bolts and the leaf spring mounting bolts can be tightened. Make sure that the locating pin is correctly aligned with the axle.
NOTE: The U-bolts must be tightened in a criss-cross sequence. This will tighten the U-bolts evenly.
ok sorry about that. let see if you can open this. thanks
