Before I take the front leaf springs off the axle I want to get advice for the easy way to remove the spring shackles. If I remember right, the last time I took the spring shackles off 30 years ago, the spring was not unsprung and when I punched the shackle out the spring let go like a gunshot. Or perhaps the gunshot was when I broke the spring center bolt and the leafs all took flight...I remember not to repeat that one.

If the axle is out of the car,just remove nuts from spring clips and lift up on spring. They should slide out.
