The car being lifted off the floor.  Stands were place under the chassis to keep the springs and axle free from obstruction.

On jack


All connections were released.  This encompasses the  propeller shaft, brake cables and one-shot system pipework.

Brake rods

The axle 'U' bolts were removed, followed by the spring rear shackle pins.  The axle was then lifted away from the car.  Note the axle locating lugs on the top of each spring.
