Rear Springs

Hey guys,

Don't know if it's been posted before, I couldn't find anything, anyway I am trying to replace the rear springs on the silver dream machine D22 and have managed to remove all the nuts and the bolts and hangers from the rear but how do you remove the bolt through the chassis at the front? I have removed the little 12mm bolt and managed to get a little movement on the bolt but how do you remove the pin style bolt? I have tried most things today even shouting at it but to no avail.

All help appreciated as normal.

Mark

Tonight: Penetrating oil for the bolt, cider for you. Shout at pigeons. Tomorrow: a better day to work on it....
(and don't forget the bolt is, I expect, under tension)

THIS might help

I know yours is a D22, but similar problems are faced.

EDIT: The stubborn fixing hierarchy, generally speaking, is funnily enough, in order with the posts on this thread; Lubrication/Shock > Heat/Shock > Cut/Burn.

Na, don't do that yourself, best take it to the garage.

Thanks, guys, the cider worked, the penetrating oil didn't and so I resorted to a multi-tool and bought new bolts from Nissan, I shouted at nearly everything today lol but to no avail again so yeah its now cut into pieces and off, well the near side is anyway, halfway through offside but all with luck and touching any wood I can find finished tomorrow

Thank you for all the advice and words of encouragement, today after 2 1/2 days of fighting, swearing, hitting things with a big hammer and still not getting anywhere my father and I decided enough was enough and we got on with the truck no seriously it has taken 2 1/2 days of hard work and tears to get the old springs off and a brand new set of old man emu on, what a nightmare, the guy on Youtube lied about oh its so easy!!!
Now the silver dream machine goes round corners with all four wheels firmly on the tarmac and I am a very happy boy, now we can see how good the tyres really are

I hate working on suspension, a simple bolt that takes half a day to remove...

It was those stupid ones that are attached with the cam style end on the chassis, as they were only £15 from Nissan I decided rather than fight anymore to just cut the things off and renew, this bit that got me was the new nuts they wanted £10.50 each so I managed to get a pair from a local store for £1.50 the pair

This is the story of most of my mechanical projects:

1) Try the job and realise I donít have the right tools and/or itís not going how the instructions said it would (15 mins/$0)
2) Try to improvise with what Iíve got, injure myself and break something (1hr/$0)
3) Go and buy the tools I should have had to start with, and after this job will never use again (2hr/$200)
4) Do the job using proper tools and technique, realise earlier attempts damaged unrelated thing which now also needs replacing (2hr/$200)
5) Finish at sunset, $400 poorer.

And thatís just changing windscreen wiper blades.
