Question about Cars & Trucks
You will need to identify the vehicle and whether it is a front or rear spring you wish to change. Now in some cases, a better Spring shop, actually can make and install the spring at their shop for a competitive price of the spring alone.
The shipping weight, if you have to pay for transportation, plays a role in the cost of doing it yourself. You can get used springs from a Salvage yard and often they are 1/2 the price of a new one.
You will need several jacks to do a rear leaf spring change and you may have problems pulling the mounting bolt past the frame. For coil springs you need a spring compressor to get clearance between the "A" arms. Strut type springs need a spring compressor too.
Remember that when replacing a broken spring, the new part will almost always be longer or arched more than the worn part. So jack accordingly.
Please rate my info and I hope it is helpful.
