Use leaf spring lowering blocks, they are availiable at most good parts stores like NAPA and CarQuest.

How do you remove the rear axle on a dodge ram 1500 p-up 2 wheel drive?


1st jack and use jack stands to safely lift the truck.disconnect brake lines and cables, remove tires,unbolt universal rear end to driveshaft, unbolt center bolts from axle to leaf springs, pull the rear end out from the side-much easier with two people. reverse process to put the new one on. I assume when you say axle you mean entire rear end. If you need to remove one axle side just take off tire and brake then remove rear end punkin cover and pull shear pin to remove your ring gear and planetary gear-pull axle shaft.

When I put the car in drive the back end bounces and their is a rubbing noise


Both of my big Ford trucks had to have the rear leaf spring mounts replaced. Look at your rear springs - if they are leaf style then check the rear mount points to see if they have broken loose. The springs end up moving way too much and it is not safe.

Leaf spring replacement


Yes but you need two thumbs. Jack the truck and support it on the frame ahead of the axel so the axel can hang on its own weight. Remove the bolts and mount to the bad spring - remove the axel mount first, Let the axel sag and put something under the tire to help hold it. Remove the spring mount bolts to the frame and lower the spring out the rear. reinstall is the reverse --- BUT --- the new spring may not fit right in the spring mounts. Mount the front bolt first and then the rear - you may have to use a pry-bar and force the spring into the rear mount.

I want to replace the rear struts on my 1995 Buick Regal Custom and am wondering if I will need a strut compressor in order to complete this task


No you don't. When you buy the parts there should be a bolt in each box. With the tires on the ground. Look at the lower control arms with a rubber bushing on the end. You will see a bolt hole in the middle of the bushing. Put the bolt in from the bottom and screw it in. This will help keep it compressed. After that jack the car and remove the tire. Then remove the two bolts up top, then the one on the bottom.Then remove the one on the strut. And install in the reverse order. Will be a good idea to replace the upper strut plate while your in there. Don't forget to remove the retainer bolt when your tire and the car is down. Let me know if any other help is needed. I own the same car just a year younger.

Towing help on 2005 GMC Sierra 1500


You really, really want a suspension specialist. Look in the yellow pages. You want a place that not only sells stuff but installs it. The kind of place that puts new springs in trucks, esp bigger trucks. They'll be in a larger city. In addition, you might want to get rid of the lift kit. It is affecting your handling but that's not your real problem, just a thought. Perhaps even, the guy who installed the lift kit moused the rear suspension, otherwise it would not be lower now. I suspect you have even less suspension than the truck came with.

Bouncing rearend


Some leaf springs, when removed causes a bounce in the rear end when you forget to put them all back. You should try adding some leaf springs recommended from the manufractuer, or just look for the same parts from another model just the same as your vehicle. (tip from experience: match the leafs, and where they go.) for example: the small one will go with the other small one. I used the 2nd largest leafs and added them to my rear end, so instead of just one leaf stock there was two. if this solves your problem let me know.
