replaceing gt6 rear spring


Recommended Posts

Hi all...tomorrow i'm going to change my gt6's rear spring as she is sitting a lot low on the back end and i thinks it's due to either a week spring or i've got a broken leaf (it is a 40 year old piece of kit) I've just been reading a book about the car and it says that i've got to disconnect the driveshafts from the diff????? surely not? If i put a jack under each rear hub to take the weight surely the spring will just pull out wont it?  Any advice?  many thanks in advance

If the spring is worn as you say it should just pull out

You will have to remove the front diff studs as the spring wont pass through

I did not even disconect the handbrake cable (it got a bit tight though)

I replaced mine last year it took about an hour and you may need an extra pair of hands

A couple of lengths of 3x2 will help you push the spring down whilst you refit the top spring clamp
