Started pulling my rear suspension so that I can add a leaf that I got from my parts jeep (I will cut and grind the leaf to size after I get the leaf pack out and apart).
Got my passenger side out, but I still need to get the upper shackle bolt out. It is partway out and the metal sleeve in the rear eye is now spinning with the bolt. I cut the lower shackle bolt off to remove the leaf pack - the hitch is in the way so I could not just pull the bolt out. I will install the new bolt the other way when I put it back together.
The drivers side has a problem in the front eye - that bolt is part way out and seized to the metal sleeve.
If my little 4 1/2" angle grinder cant reach up in there to cut deep enough I will go borrow a 6" or 7" angle grinder - whatever those bigger ones are sized at.
Hopefully tomorrow will see both leaf packs out so I can start cleaning the parts and cutting/grinding the new leaf to fit.
