How to change rear leaf spring
My main rear leaf spring is broken. The biggest one that bolts to the frame mounts. Actually the drivers & passenger side is broke.
Is it straight forward on how to change these? Any special tools required?? Also is it strange that both are broke?? They probably did not break at the same time & I have no idea how long they have been broke. My shocks are bad which probably didn't help. I don't tow alot. I do have a 30ft travel trailer that I tow & haul my firewood with the truck. That's about it for working her.
Another question is can the broken leafs be welded? ( pretty sure I know what the answer to that is).
