This is the first video I’ve ever made. I attempt to guide you through replacing your leaf springs on your own. It’s easy and you shouldn’t pay a shop to do it!

Thanks for this video man! Made my install a breeze... 8 hours or so in the garage, but it was rad doing it all my self and your directions were on point. Also, I ended up going with the Dobinsons leafs too! Can’t wait to get out on the trail and test them out.

Wow, thank you! I wasn't sure if it would help anyone, lol.

Thanks for making this video! I’ll be installing my dobinson leaf packs at the end of the month, and this is a great reference. Hoping I can get the old sleeves out without too much of a struggle, but these New England winters may have already cemented them in.

If you can’t get them out, I think you can rent certain tools for free. The impact hammer in my video seemed to make it look easy after the struggle I had.

Perfect timing. Still bouncing around on my suspension upgrade.
Tyler - Impact Wrench. ;)
I guess air hammer would be the nomenclature for the tool I was talking about when I said impact hammer.

Good idea, I'll call around to a few shops tomorrow and see who might have a rental available. On visual inspection yesterday mine were already looking a little rough, so I picked up a new set of OEM shackles, just in case 🤞🤞

If the OEM shackles weren’t too expensive, maybe you should just use them. Getting the bushings and sleeves out of mine was clearly the most time consuming part of the job.
