Rear springs

Post by pinzinator » Sat Jul 11, 2009 10:45 am

I was reading through the Pinzgauer repair manual on how to remove the rear axle housing, which is straight forward. To remove the springs, the book says "Twist out lower spring support bolt" and "Remove springs together with spring retainer". It makes no mention of using a spring compressor. Could it be that easy?
The shock needs to be removed first, and eventually the limiting strap. Has anyone done this?

I found my own answer doing a search (duh..). As usual, it's Jim with his handy tips, he's the best.
