The front spring bolts were removed from the spring hangers, then the rear spring bolts were removed from the spring hangers. The leaf springs were lifted out and set aside. Our truck has a GVW of 10,000 pounds, so it has the eight-spring pack with the overload. We were initially going to reuse them by removing a few of the leaves, but after inspecting them closer, we discovered a couple of broken ones. We decided to get a new set from Detroit Eaton Spring.
