SOURCE: ford escape Rear Suspension With Coil Springs - out of joint?

It is a 4x4. The "yellow" looking item in between/inside the black spring coil seems to be out of its joint. When I compare the left vs the right, the left side is sitting up high, while the right side appears to be settled into place.

SOURCE: Right Rear Coil spring Assembly Broken ( Pot Hole)

No, you don't absolutely have to replace both rear springs to make it all functional again. Having said that, if I were you, I would replace both so as to assure myself that I had a evenly balanced rear suspension.

As to the schematic, you can purchase a vehicle specific repair manual at your local PepBoys, Auto Zone, Advance, O'Reilly's, etc. that will contain the info you seek. Probably won't run over $25

Hope this is of some help.

Good luck!

I have a 2005 Pontiac Sunfire. I have the same problem that many other people have. The trunk latch bends the U hook mounted on the car. The U hook is mounted on a very week piece of metal that...

if where the "U" hook is mounted is just sheet metal the that area will have to be strengthened. Get a piece of flat bar about 3/16 " thick and remove the hook, place the flat bar behind the sheet metal. Make it long enough to be able to drill outside the width of the hook. Mark holes for the hook and drill. place the flat bar behind the rear and do the hook back up
This will place the flat bar behind the sheet metal in place
now drill smaller holes for pop rivets and fix the bar to the sheet metal
This mod will spread the load over a greater area of the hook and reduce the sheet metal bending

How do I replace the rear axle assembly in a 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis?

If you have air suspension, turn it off from the trunk. Put car on hoist and support rear axle. Make sure you support the axel well so the coil springs do not injure you when you remove the shocks and etc. Remove brake lines from brakes. Remove emergency brake cable from brakes. Remove sway bar link bolts to frame. Remove the bolts that hold axle to rear control arms. Remove rear shocks. ( these are a real pain ) Axle assembly can now be removed.

I'm having a banging problem in the rear and I don't see anything hanging off. It's scarey.

Take a look at the rear coil springs, mounted on the rear struts. These have a bad tendancy to brake. Also note any fuid leaking from the strut itself. Struts can be purchased for this vehicle that already have new springs installed on them, eliminating the need for a spring compressor, as this is also a dangerous operation for an ameteur. Another thing to check is the rear stabilizer bar links. When these break, the make alot of banging noise. Good luck!

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.

There is a bar hanging from behind the rear passenger side wheel and in drive the car feels like someone is rear ending you and in reverse the bar drags and the air suspension just goes flat

Don't drive it until you have someone look at it. If it's
part of the suspension, it would be too dangerous to
drive on public roads. It sounds like the rear stabilizer
bar has dropped.Good luck.
