Rear coil spring - removal and refittingSuspension / Rear coil spring - removal and refitting
1 Raise the rear of the car and support it securely on axle stands placed under the side-members or sill jacking points.
2 Remove the roadwheel.
3 Place a jack under the brake drum and support the suspension trailing arm.
4 Disconnect the shock absorber lower mounting and then lower the trailing arm jack until the coil spring can be withdrawn.
5 Refitting is a reversal of removal. If the spring is being changed, make sure that it is of the same colour code as the original and that its lower coil is correctly located up against its stop in the spring pan.
