I'm trying to remove the coil spring on a 1981 AMC concord. Is the retaining bolts on the lower spring spindle permanate or do they come out? I collapsed the coil but can't slide the lower spring seat out...


1306f60.gif
This is for the lower control arm:
NOTE The inner end of the lower control arm is attached to a removable crossmember. The outer end is attached to the steering knuckle pin and ball joint assembly.

  1. Jack up the car and support it on axle stands under the subframes.
  2. Remove the brake drum or caliper and rotor from the spindle.
  3. Disconnect the steering arm from the knuckle pin.
  4. Remove the lower ball joint stud cotter pin and nut.
  5. Separate the ball joint from the knuckle pin using a ball joint removal tool.
  6. Disconnect the sway bar from the control arm.
  7. Unbolt the strut rod.
  8. Remove the inner pivot bolt and the control arm. To install:
  9. Reverse the removal procedure; do not tighten inner pivot bolt until car weight is on wheels. Tighten ball joint retaining nut to 40 ft. lbs. through 1976, 75 ft. lbs. thereafter, strut rod bolts to 75 ft. lbs., sway bar bolts to 8 ft. lbs., steering arm bolts to 65 ft. lbs. through 1979, 55 ft. lbs. thereafter, and control arm inner pivot bolt to 95 ft. lbs. through 1976, 110 ft. lbs. thereafter.
This is for the coil spring.....see if maybe you missed a step in here:


  1. Remove the shock absorber.
  2. Install a spring compressor through the upper spring seat opening and bolt it to the lower spring seat using the lower shock absorber mounting holes.
  3. Remove the lower spring seat pivot retaining nuts, then tighten the compressor tool to compress the spring about 1" (25.4mm).
  4. Jack up the front of the car and support it on axle stands at the subframe (allowing the control arms to hang free).
  5. Remove the front wheel and pull the lower spring seat out away from the car, then slowly release the spring tension and remove the coil spring and lower spring seat. To install:
  6. Place the spring compressor through the coil spring and tape the rubber spring cushion to the small diameter end of the spring (upper).
  7. Place the lower spring seat against the spring with the end of the coil against the formed shoulder in the seat. The shoulder and coil end face inwards, toward the engine, when the spring is installed.
  8. Place the spring up against the upper seat, then align the lower spring seat pivot so that the retaining studs will enter the holes in the upper control arm.
  9. Compress the coil spring and install the spring.
  10. Then install the wheel and tire and lower the car to the floor (to place weight on suspension).
  11. Install and tighten lower spring seat spindle retaining nuts and tighten them to 35 ft. lbs.
  12. Remove the spring compressor and install the shock absorber.

Removed old strut last night Today can't get new


Installation
  1. sww~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: The bearing and seal assembly is press-fit onto the upper mount. The mount washers must be installed in the correct orientation.
    NOTE: Be sure to check the spring insulator for damage before assembly. If the outer metal splash shield is bent or damaged, it must be carefully bent back, so it does not touch the locator on the bearing and seal assembly.

    NOTE: New gas struts are shipped with the rod in a locked down position. To extend the new strut, remove the external tie down and/or rotate the upper end of the rod, counterclockwise.

    Install the coil spring insulator, coil spring, and upper mounting parts to the new strut assembly. Make sure the spring is correctly seated in both spring seats.
