pimp my vit

I am about to fit a lowering block on the rear spring, any tips on doing this? can I do it on my own? can I do it by just removing the diff studs and not touch the ends of the spring, and do I leave the suspension just hanging and jack/axle stand the rear of the chassis.

Any tips would be appreciated...cheers.

Roto or non roto?


If it was made by man, it can be dismantled and rebuilt by man. Usually just not as easily.

You will probably need the spring lifting tool - which is basically a lenght of bar with two 'U' bits welded on and a bolt through them to 'clamp' the spring. This can be used as a lever to pry the spring into position. Bear in mind that if you leave the rear uprights connected and try to remove the diff studs the spring will keep pushing up on them until it hits the rear tub... at which point it will probably bend the tub.
