1969 camaro rear leaf spring shackle instalation

Would like to know the best way to install the shackle when mounting the leafspring/rear end to the car. Should the shackle be mounted to the spring or frame first?

Re: 1969 camaro rear leaf spring shackle instalation

easier to bolt the shackles to the frame first, then jack up the rear till you can line up the spring eyes and slide the bolts home.

Make sure the weight of the car is on the springs before you fully tighten any of these bolts.
