decided to flip the leaf springs back to normal today since they've been upside down for some time now (good ride height, rides like dripping crap though).
so anyways, took out the retaining bolt in the middle of them cause that had to be flipped around too as the nut side wasn't fitting into the hole in the axle, so i took that bolt out and forgot about a thing called *spring compression* and all 3 leaves went flying in different directions. so now i gotta figure out how to put this thing back together the proper way. i'd look at the other side but, the PO of the car is the one that flipped them and "customized" them, so i don't trust it.
i was trying to get it back together so me and my girl could go swimming today, so hit me up on aim if you got a quick answer or whatever. tia http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: aye, i need pics of STOCK caddy leaf spring setups on the car, ASAP! (Weaver)

the side i havn't completely taken out yet, which i ASSUMED was flipped, but i don't even know how they're supposed to be, they're just low as hell and arch up towards the sky instead of down so i'm assuming thats what they did:

bastards. scared the crap outta me when they exploded after i took the bolt out

i'm lost.
