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

The gears busted in my differential ann i stead of replaceing the gears i want to jus put a new rear end on it but dont know how to take the old one off


I wouldn't attempt such a large job unless your capable of handling it. Essentially there is nothing difficult about this job. You have to break loose the U joint, brake lines E braks, shocks, leaf springs/coil springs and slid the new on in place and reinstall.

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.

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.

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.

LEAF SPRING DISSASSEMBLY


IT DEFINATELY CAN BUT IT WILL THROW OFF YOUR ALIGNMENT AND TIRES FOREVER.ANY REALIGNMENT WOULD BE A GUESS ! ASK A DEALER ABOUT THAT ONE AND GET A WARRANTEE WITH IT.

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.

Your suspicions are correct. It is a lighter duty truck than the 2500HD which has the 8 bolt axles.
