Rear Springs

April 2004:

With the rear wheel carrier and petrol tank removed it was possible to see the differential and chassis from the rear

June 2004:

I oiled the springs using ATF and a paint brush as I had some spare.  And yes, I have used nyloc nuts - no point using the special chamfered originals with the new bushes.

April 2007:

The 40" long back springs are 113/16" wide and the spare back springs are 1½"wide!
