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.
