SOURCE: how to change leaf springs on my own?

Go to
Find a store near you and plan on spending some hard earned money. They will help you to pick the BEST solution for your needs... springs, shocks,bushings and so on...
you can install new suspension if you have the right tools... but it is probably easier to have it done...No headaches
also... air springs?.. you may need some extensive fab work..I would definately go to 4 wheel parts to find what you need

SOURCE: 91 Trooper leaf springs

ok what you have is just a multi leaf leaf spring. in the middle of the leaf where the axle should be a bolt that holds them together. you need to check the U bolts that hold the axle to the spring. there has to be a reason it moved . check the leaf spring for a broken leaf. i would recomend getting new Ubolts. and when you put it back together make sure you use the bolt that holds the leaves together as the center .
if ya need more help just let me know
if ya could snap a pic if you are having problems and send it i might be able to be more of a help.

SOURCE: Broken Chevy 88 Silverado shift indicator. Need Diagram.

The neddle is attached to the column via a thin metal wire and spring which then clips to the edge. Remove the trim above the column and look for the clip attached to the wire and a warn spot on the column and reattach it. :)

SOURCE: i changed the cv joints on my 1992 toyota tercell

If you have a manual transmission, that was gear oil. There is a fill plug that you must remove, and then fill with the pointy end of the gear oil bottle with a piece of hose stretched over the tip (there is no fill tube). If you have an automatic transmission, that was automatic transmission fluid coming out of the differential. This has a separate fill hole very similar to the manual transmission's. In this case, I've used a funnel with a piece of hose stretched over the end. In both cases, the fluids should be added when the car is on a level surface because the fill holes are positioned such that oil spills out when capacity is reached. If you don't have a manual to show you exactly where all these plugs are located and which types of oils to use, go to, enter your car's information, and you can find an online manual that tells you everything you need to know. Also, this might be a good time to change those fluids (I imagine if you've gone through CV joints, there are quite a few miles on those fluids). If you decide to change them, make sure you can get the fill plug off before you pull the drain plug as to not end up with an empty transmission that you can't fill.

I was charged $330 for 4.5 hours of labor to replace both leaf springs in my 2009 Chev. Siverado. This was labor only.

Seems to be spot on as far as cost is concerned for the TOTAL job. The two leaf springs mounting points is the easy bit, it all the stuff attached on the middle. Most of the bolts would be corroded and need heat to loosen them.

The average cost for a Chevrolet Silverado 1500 suspension leaf spring replacement is between $306 and $330. Labor costs are estimated between $88 and $111 while parts are priced between $218 and $219. Estimate does not include taxes and fees.

Need rubber bushing for overload 1999 chevy silverado

If your talking about the plastic pieces that go between the leaf springs. Go to a place the sells or custom makes leaf springs. You know you have to remove and separate the springs to get them in place, right. Two bolts and two metal straps hold the springs in place.

You're wasting both time and money on a vehicle that is not worth the $$ you would have to spend to repair it - if you can at all. Junkyard, dude. Sorry. I replaced the leaf springs and hangers on a '03 Silverado several years ago - $1,000. I did it because I only paid $2,500 for the truck, which was otherwise OK.

The gears busted in my differential ann i stead of replaceing the gears i want to jus put a new rear end on it but dont know how to take the old one off

I wouldn't attempt such a large job unless your capable of handling it. Essentially there is nothing difficult about this job. You have to break loose the U joint, brake lines E braks, shocks, leaf springs/coil springs and slid the new on in place and reinstall.

At first I thought my cv joint was going bad on my 2000 Silverado (classic popping sound) then I turned down my stereo and realized it was coming from the rear drivers side. When I pump the breaks it will...

First thing to verify (since its hard to isolate these sounds without using this little trick), turn off
stereo and while driving forward or turning stick an ear (or two) out the driver's window and
make sure the sound is coming from the rear diver's side.

Assuming that the sound is coming from the rear driver's side, you'll suspect the rear
suspension components: rear ball joints, shock mounts (upper & lower), trailing arm. The only
way to check
your rear suspension components is to jack up vehicle, remove L rear tire, and look for
anything loose, or missing a bolt or a nut (this happens more often than you'd ever
guess - they vibrate loose).
Also: axle shaft bearing - worn/damaged/dry. Replace or lubricate (if dry).

Have your universal joints checked and also the differential fluid level checked. Also the leaf spring bushings on those GM's do go bad have them checked too.
