Saturday I had the differential rebuilt w/trac-loc, 3.50 gears, & new axle bearings installed by 8and9inchfordrears in southwestern NJ. Today I started cutting the front bolt for the r/s rear leaf springs.

Default Re: 69 Coupe progress pics

Today after work I started working on removing the r/s rear leaf spring front eyelet bolt that was rusted in the bushing. Using a 4 1/2" cut off wheel on my angle grinder I cut off most of the leaf spring to get it out of my way & was able to cut off the bolt end that the nut screws on to but could not get at the other end since the frame is in the way. I purchased a 7" cut off wheel & made a guard to protect my hands while cutting. With the larger wheel I was able to cut through the other end of the bolt & removed the rest of the leaf spring.



Old leaf springs.

Did not have a pic from when I reinstalled the rear end housing, so here it is. Today I installed the center differential housing, installed the new Koni STR T rear shocks, tightened all the rear spring attaching bolts, u bolts, & shackle bolts. Removed the old metal brake line going to the rear, & the rubber line from the metal line to the rear end housing.

Thanks guys. Today it was around 60 & sunny at the Jersey shore so I did some mor work on the 69. I replaced the broken rear axle vent hose, replaced the rubber brake hose from the rear axle to the metal line, replaced the metal line from the dist block in front down the trans tunnel to the rubber line, & replaced both metal lines to the rear wheels.
