Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

What's the trick to getting the spring back in place, while replacing a broken axle and pedal on a Simplicity 7250?

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.

SOURCE: clutch/spring

Hi,

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.

SOURCE: 85 cj7 rear axle removal

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.

SOURCE: spider gears fell on rear differential 95 ford explorer

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.

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!

How do I remove a broken leaf spring?


You will need to jack up the truck by the frame on the side that has the broken spring not by the axle. Then when the tire is off the ground loosen the leaf retention bolts that hold the spring to the axle remove the broken spring and replace it. Side note have a good set of jack stands to support the vehicle while you work on replacing the broke spring never trust a jack they can give away at any time.

How do i replace leaf springs on a dump truck


The best way is to jack up the truck frame (not the axle) high enough to pull the tires off. Put the frame on stands and secure it. Pull the tire/wheels off the side you want to replace the springs on, and then put a jack under the axle to support it once you pull the springs out. The easy way is to just cut all the U bolts with a torch. But, if you need to reuse them, heat the nuts to red hot, throw water on them to cool them off, spray everything down good with wd40 and remove them with a air impact wrench. Once your springs are free from the axle, You may need a bottle jack to jack down the axle to make room to pull them out. Set the new springs in place, remove the bottle jack and jack up on the axle to jack it back into place, putting some pressure on the spring and bolt it all back in place. Hope this helps Fix Ya up.

My rear end has dropped and looks crazy and will not lift


Do you have:
1. Shocks and Leaf Springs?
If so: the Shocks could be "shot" and/or broken or completely discharged. OR the Leaf Springs Retainers or the Leaf Springs have broken. The Retainers should have two (2) bolts holding braces which hold the multiple leafs of the Leaf Springs together. Check these. Also you have bushings bolted then welded to the frame that will need to be checked.
2. Struts with Coils (Springs)?
If so: the Struts could be "shot, and/or broken or completely discharged. The Coils (Springs) could be broken of dislocated.
3. Coils (Springs) without Struts?
If so: the Coils (Springs) could be broken or dislocated.
4. Independent Bar Suspension?
If so: the independent bars could be bent, broken or dislocated from their frame connections with the frame.
5. Solid Axle?
If so: the Axle could be bent, broken or dislocated from their frame connections with the frame.
Since you cannot lift the vehicle, I am assuming you are using the jack under the axle to lift? This would point to the Axle/Bars being broken.

Was an excessive load (weight) put on the back of the SUV lately?

If you can't lift the rear of the vehicle, jack-up and properly support the front then jack-up and support the middle towars the rear of the vehicle to gain access to the rear of the vehicle for a better look.
However while doing this if the rear starts rising: keep a careful eye on the rear tires to see if they are going lower than what they would normally go when you are jacking-up the rear, especially with a broken Axle or Bars. THIS COULD CAUSE THE BROKEN OR DISLOCATED PARTS TO FURTHER BREAK OR CAUSE OTHER CONNECTING PARTS TO FAIL AND BREAK OR COULD CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE REST OF THE SURROUNDING AREAS OF THE CAR. I have seen an Axle and Bars that were broken "pierce" into the body of the vehicle because they were not carefully watching.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have any additional information, problems, or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!
ps...when describing your problem feel free to fully explain in as much detail as you can, including in this case what type of rear suspension system you have, 2WD, 4WD, AWD, your engine size etc. There is no limit to describing your problem. It enables us to get a very precise answer to your very precise problem quicker.

91 Trooper leaf springs


ok what you have is just a multi leaf leaf spring. in the middle of the leaf where the axle should be a bolt that holds them together. you need to check the U bolts that hold the axle to the spring. there has to be a reason it moved . check the leaf spring for a broken leaf. i would recomend getting new Ubolts. and when you put it back together make sure you use the bolt that holds the leaves together as the center .
if ya need more help just let me know
if ya could snap a pic if you are having problems and send it i might be able to be more of a help.
