I have a 1978 CJ5 with a rotten rear drivers side spring perch.
Every video I see on the internet shows the person dropping the rear axle, grinding the perches off then having to line them up correctly before welding them back in place.
Why couldn't I leave the axle in place, disconnect them from the suspension. Grind off the perches, slide the new ones in and weld them in place. This would seemingly bypass the issue of lining them up correctly.
If there is a good tutorial video or instructions please link me up, I've been searching around and can't find anything really good.
Thanks so much, have a great weekend.
