Measure Position of the Spring Plates


If you want the ride height to remain the same after this operation and the rear geometry not to change, take some measurements as you are disassembling the suspension so you can put it back together the same way. I made three 'measurements':

  1. I spray painted the end of the spring plate to show there it matched the banana arm.
  2. I measured from the bottom of the spring plate - where the lower bolt is attached to the banana arm - to the floor.
  3. I pulled the spring plate off the torsion bar leaving the inside splines attached to the car. Then I put a piece of tape on the outside end and marked a vertical line on the tape.
