Having problems with your 1997 Nissan Pickup ?
Leaf spring replacement
\015 My PU has a definite tip in the right rear. I have seen this on many 1997 PU beds, but could never get Nissan to respond to the problem. I believe it has become obvious that it is the leaf spring.\015\012\015\012Can a fumble fingered shade tree mechanic do this job?\015
Yes but you need two thumbs. Jack the truck and support it on the frame ahead of the axel so the axel can hang on its own weight. Remove the bolts and mount to the bad spring - remove the axel mount first, Let the axel sag and put something under the tire to help hold it. Remove the spring mount bolts to the frame and lower the spring out the rear. reinstall is the reverse --- BUT --- the new spring may not fit right in the spring mounts.\012Mount the front bolt first and then the rear - you may have to use a pry-bar and force the spring into the rear mount.
