MORryde TO108-002 shear spring replaced pointers needed

Iím about to replace 8 morryde TO108-002 shear springs on my 1967 FAN Luxury Liner. Before I tackle this is it pretty straight forward replacement? I see they offer a special tool but it looks like that may be for a different application than my old rig. Are there 4 bolts per spring at the top? I see the bottom ones and the new springs each have 8 holes but how do you access the top ones in the ďboxĒ if theyíre there. I canít see any evidence of bolts for the top, but really couldnít crawl around too much because of back problems. Any pointers greatly appreciated!

Well you can Google the web with the part number or call Mor Ryde they are consumer friendly. I believe they also have a tutorial on this.

I can tell you it is weight/labor intensive, and I do believe uncoupling the tag axle is the most efficient way to achieve the task.

There are a few threads around the web but no step by step instructions. But I too have this problem and will do it by myself. One note here think a day or two and multiple heavy duty saftey jacks. Good luck I will be watching this thread closely.

Thanks, yeah itís uncharted territory for me with this design. I dropped morryde an email with many pictures a couple days ago but no reply yet. The entire tandem set is welded to the trailer frame so I cannot just simply unbolt it and drop it down. Iím investigating to see if I can come from above with a small access hole vs separating camper body from frame.

Just heard back:

“Here is what my engineer said.

There are no upper bolts securing the rubber springs to the frame hanger. The top side of the rubber springs are connected to the frame hanger with hook plates.

Thank you,

Correction to original post I have only 4 spring blocks.

Very happy this company is still around to supply parts!

So I will hold off on the interior remodel because I have the access if I need it. Started probing around and thru the top will work if it becomes necessary:

Ohh I see, looks like a cakewalk from here, It could be worse by far, below is my project very similar to your's ...just a few lbs here and there...

Below is a link that might be somewhat similar, my eyes just glazed over and shut down. He was making it seem far too much work....better to walk in blind and cry later speaking for myself...Otherwise nothing would get accomplished or I would be financially stunted is the word...

Yeah nothing is ever easy when it come to suspension. I plan on leaving the frame side of spring attached on both sides then lowering the axle side. Iíll spread with a portapower if needed. Still need to wait a few weeks when I see the Dr. for a post op checkup. Putting back together I may need to secure the frame down to concrete pad then jack the axle back up. Iíve had to do this working on my 1944 studebaker M29. Here is a morryde axle diagram showing bolts at the top thatís why I got nervous about this repair.
