I'm changing a leaf spring on my truck. I have the new one in place, bolted at the rear, u-bolts back in place. My question is what can I do (or how) to make the front end come down to allow me to slide the bolt into place? If I jack the truck back up to take the weight off, the leaf spring curves upward and the hole won't align. It needs the weight on it for the leaf spring to align.
I don't know if I should have bolted the front first, or there is some trick to this. Any info would be appreciated.
