Re: what is the best way to remove single leaf spring perches?

keep cutting and whacking it with a hammer as you go.. eventually, you will get all the weld broken off.

you don't plan sincerity.
you have to make it up on the spot.

wanna hear about 20 years ago when i was too smart to know any better?

i got it off. the 4 plug welds in the center were causing the trouble. i little time with the cut off wheel and grinder fixed it.
