We remove the springs when they break, sag, replace the spring gaskets, remove the beam and when removing the exhaust system (you have to remove the left spring)
To remove the springs, we prepare the car and install it on a viewing hole or lift.
When replacing springs, they must be replaced in pairs, because they will already differ in elasticity.
We unscrew the bolt of the lower shock absorber mounting to the rear suspension beam arm.
We hang the rear of the car and securely fix it on the factory-made stands.
Squeezing the coils of the spring with two ties, remove it.
You can also remove the spring without using ties.
This may require an assistant. We insert a piece of pipe or a mount into the hole in the beam lever.
Pull down the pipe section, depressing the beam lever, and take out the spring.
Remove the lower and upper spring spacers.
The top spring spacer usually sticks to the body.
We make sure that there are no deformations and tears on the gaskets.
Before mounting the spring, install the top gasket on it so that the end of the upper coil of the spring rests against the ledge of the gasket.
Then, so that the top gasket does not move when mounting the spring, we attach it to the spring with tape or electrical tape.
Install the lower spring spacer on the ledge of the lever bracket so that the gasket pin enters the bracket hole (shown on the removed beam for clarity).
We mount the spring so that the end of its lower coil rests against the ledge of the gasket.
Leaving the beam lever down, we put the upper end of the spring with the gasket on the protrusion of the body bracket.
Further assembly of the rear suspension is carried out in reverse order.
