Front coil Spring Tree

Asked by Mar 09, 2013 at 10:18 AM about the 1996 Ford Bronco XLT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My front coil spring tree is rusted in to. My question is the original looks like rivets what to use to attach new spring tree to frame?

1 Answer

time to get out your grinder, and just grind those bad boys off, then use a hammer to break 'em free. repace the 'rivets' with stainless fasteners. In a production environment there isn't time to assemble with the thought that will probably NEVER be serviced....but I agree, a nut insert would have been more classy~
