Re: Inspection woes.
does your truck have rust?
if so removing the old leafs could be a real bitch. expect to cut the head and nut end off the bolt and drop the spring pack straight down....
in the rust belts, the bolts rust to the steel bushing sleeves and cant be pounded loose no matter how hard you try if its bad.
do you new leafs have the metal sleeve that fits inside the bushing that the bolt goes into? if not, get those. also new bolts for the leafs.
around here, if its over 7 years old i dont even touch a wrench to the spring bolts, they all get the torch....
