Once the radius arms are free it is pretty straightforward to drop the rear suspension. The drive shaft has to be unbolted from the differential, the brake line has to be unscrewed and the handbrake cable has to be freed. Once this is done make sure that the suspension plate is nice and square on the floor jack and wood – you might want to tie it securely. I got my son and a friend to hold onto the right and left wheel hubs to help keep everything straight on the way down. You then have to unbolt the four metal and rubber mounts that hold the suspension cage to the bottom of the car. These all came free very easily in the case of the car – and slowly and carefully we lowered the entire suspension down on the jack. The unit is heavy but two people can move it with a little effort. We placed it on a rolling dolly so I could move it and work on it. Although dirty and grimy – everything looked solid with no obvious signs of leakage from the differential. It was a good day!
