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.

1997 Mitsubishi 3000GT alternator removal

Relieve alternator tension by releasing tension on the belt (it's the A/C pulley you get to it from inside the drivers wheel well), Remove the bolts holding the alternator to the bracket on the block, remove the two bracket bolts on the block and remove the bracket. Loosen the two bracket arms (marked L and R) of the top of the radiator and push the radiator forward about two inches, you will now have enough clearance to get the alternator out of the top (where the radiator was). Easy Peasy. Good luck!

Need 2 get axels out of ford 8.8 rearend. I got it all apart but i cant get the axels to come out. I need to replace the axel seal and bearing. Hope you can help.

Do you have the pin in the differential out & "c" clips removed, or is it a different system? Once pin is out you push in slightly on axles & remove "c" clip, then pull them out.

Cv axel

you will have to use something to pry it out. Normally a long flat tip screwdriver has always pryed out the stubborn cv axels for me.
