spring pack ctr bolt for shim and axle mount

ok so i will have to use a larger than a 2 1/2 degree shim with my new 4.5" RE lift in order to aim pinion towards transcase as the geometry requires for a CV shaft install. the bolt that goes through the springs and holds the shim and inserts into a hole in the bottom of the axle tube will have to be longer for the thicker shim.tom woods said he was sending me some longer ones. my question is- are these bolts a b!tch to get out of the springs? they appear to be pressed in. a 9/16 nut is on the bottom. anybody ever change these out? probably back off the nut to flush with the end of the bolt and beat out? i calculate the thickness of a 12 degree shim to be 1 3/16" thick at the front! i wonder if my u-bolts will be long enough! maybe tom is off on the 12 degrees. maybe get by with less. should get the SYE and CV monday. thanks for the help! steve

Not difficult at all. Put a clamp or two on the spring pack, lock a vise grip down on the head of the center bolt, and remove the nut. The center bolt will come right out.

thanks jeepskate-
i'll go check it out right now. and the purpose of the clamp on the springs is so the holes in the springs stay lined up? i have the spring off now and will go do. just getting ready for the shim caper!
