Can't wait to see the new pics up under there.

The hardest part was pulling the top leaf spring rubber bushing out. It had turned into rubbermetal and was rubberwelded into the socket that holds the bushing. Finally got it out with a hammer, vise-grip, two small pry bars and half a can of penetrating oil. Still have most of my sanity left.
