Question about Cars & Trucks
If I first put the spring loop over the tab, the axle won't go through the holes (it misses by a millimeter or so), and I can't get the loop over the tab after running the axle all the way through first.

To my knowledge, the spring is merely to assist the pedal to return at its default position (clutch engaged), that is pedal up. Normally, it would have an exaggerated j ends. The ends are meant to hook to two (2) slots, one at the pedal itself, the other at the bracket/housing or firewall and not replace the entire clutch assembly. Having said that and as per your post, the clutch works fine, it is a matter of finding a replacement spring of similar physical characteristics/dimensions and hook in place. Hooking in place is relatively easy saved that you have to crouch down and use a long noise pliers. A mechanics troubleshooting lamp would help seeing where the j ends would and should go into.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.

Isn't there a stabilizer bar attached to bottom or top of it? if so, and it's has a strut/link attached from end of it to the control arm, remove that & that might give you some room to move. It's just a long bolt with a sleeve & few bushings etc. Make sure you pay attention for re-assembly.

Do you have bolt in axels? or are they held in with C- clips? If its bolt in axels you need to remove the bolts, and you may need an axel puller to get them out. If its got C- clips rear cover on rearend has to come off, and pin has to be removed to get C- clip out to get axel out.

It's not easy to put them back, but if you get the side gears in position with the axles bumped out as far as you can, the smaller spider gears can be "walked" into place. Try having your buddy rotate one of the wheels slowly until each one fits in. It's tricky but you'll get it.

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.
