well i put an aal in my bronco II the other day and took alot of pics, so i thought i would make a write up. But if u get hurt or fawk up your rig, its not my fault. Take your time!
First thing u do is jack up the rear and support the frame with jackstands, its easier to do one side at a time, then try both at the same time.
Second, take the wheel off, and loosen the ubolts that hold the spring on the axle
Some people choose to take the whole leaf out, but i chose to leave them in to do the aal, it is alot easier with them removed and using a vice.
Next undo the rear sway bar link if so equiped
Now place a jack under the side of the axle you are working on(i put it under the shock mount), and lower the axle. Then take the right size socket and vice grip pliers and remove the centering pin, its usefull to use a c-clamp to hold the springs together( DO NOT PUT YOUR HANDS BETWEEN THE SPRINGS AND AXLE WHILE DOING THIS)
The pack will start to come apart
This is the pack removed from the main leaf
Here is the main leaf, still on the vehicle
Ok now the fun part. put your aal in with your other leafs where it is the correct length with the others in the pack (top longer, bottom shorter), then run your new centering pin through the holes up through the main leaf
If your centering pin isnt long enough use a c-clamp to pull the leafs together far enough to get it through and get a nuts length threaded on
Here is the finished product
Now reinstall the ubolts
and reinstall the sway bar links and do other side
Hope this helps, ive seen some instructions that come with aal's that have no pics, and i figured this would help out some noobies :thefinger:
