Re: New leaf springs

Actually I was shocked the bolt did not snap.

Just knew I had to go the heat torch and grinder route next.

Try a BFH on the drums, hit them on the face side on the outer edge or put the tire on with the lug nuts a little loose and shift into forward and reverse to break the drum loose. Also make sure the parking brake is off, and the self adjusting adjusters are loosened.

The upper shackle bolt uses a captured nut, just like the front spring eye bolt.
