Thanks. What i am referring to is the 2 sentences after the picture. There isn't much detail. I guess just hammer the bolts out?

1953 leaf spring removal

I plan to remove the leaf springs. New bushings liners etc. The 3 nuts come off easily but they seem to be studs and not bolts. The manual was no help. Do I just hammer the 3 studs out? I don't want to mess it up. The shocks are unbolted. The axle is supported off the leafs. Any suggestions?
Thanks

Yes will be doing 12 volt but wanted to add AC anyway. Most electric trans controllers need vacuum and spark/tach signal. Load and rpm.

I am using a 4L60e not a 700R4/4L60 so I don't have a throttle cable but will need to T a MAP sensor into a vacuum line. The trans control unit i build will go in the trunk.

Next up is linkage cooler lines and dip stick.

Should have taken more pictures along the way but the trans is in. Still have to get everything hooked up though.
