I bought a '98 Taco 4x4 last summer for my son and it was/is lifted via blocks. A leaf in the LR broke last week. Per recommendations from his friend and a shop we bought Skyjacker TCR 25S springs to replace the blocks and springs. I'm told we may need a small spacer but we'll wait to see how it sits. Now I have 2 problems:
1) Even after freeing the frozen bolts I'm stuck trying to get the old springs out of the rear shackles. Is there a good trick for doing this? The nuts are off but nothing wants to move.
2) I believe the new springs will sit right on top of the emergency brake cable. Is there an easy fix?
Sorry for the newby questions. I've just started searching but haven't found much info, apart from taking the rear shackles out is hard (didn't need to read that :-).
Thanks for any help.
