Started working on replacing the leaf springs. Went with stock. Only got one side, halfway done today! Getting the old, flat, broken spring out was easier than I thought it would be. Putting the new one in was a huge pain, a lot harder than I thought, partially again, because I've never done it before. Turns out the upper bushings in the new shackles were wrong, so I'm waiting on those now. With the spring not totally in, the pin is a little ways off from lining up. Hopefully that will work out once the spring is actually in!! I'm guessing that the other side will be harder to get out, but easier to get back in.

Well I was wrong. the other side came out way easier, mainly due to the front bolt breaking due to rust, and then using the sawzall on the rest of them. so now waiting on upper rear bushings, and have to come up with a front bolt. so it's all in pieces for a while. at least it's supposed to be raining for the next week or something.
