Replace rear suspension rubbers

by Carpet56 » Thu Jan 03, 2019 10:02 am

My first post here. Just replaced all bushes and rubbers on my eh special and after looking at the info on getting rear spring hangers attached i realized i couldnt use the block of wood method described by many as the motor, gearbox and diff etc were out of the car and placing jack under centre of spring would only lift body off the stands. So some lateral thinking later i used a piece of rhs placed on top of the spring with a suitable sized g-clamp attached and proceeded to screw together and presto spring extended and i then could move the rear of the spring with trolley jack and attach the hangers with ease. This can be done by yourself if needed as i didnt have anyone to help me with the spring. This worked for me so should work for anyone.
