    Broke my first leaf spring in an MX8.I have an Allem double release. The Allem hook is in my way of removing the old spring.....not enough room to let the pin on the spring clear the hole it sits in. Do I need to remove the allem hook .....if so how do I do it ?

    you just push the pin holding the hook in place not all the way out ,just enough to remove hook then push it back in ,after you change the spring then reverse you action

    if you think the Allem is bad try a Mcdaniel, I made a special tool to do it with. the McDaniel hooks the middle of the hammer not a pin on the side. The above post about reversing the removal action is right on.

    thanks....it worked. the key is you only have to drive the pin partially out.
