The Model A Leafspring Debacle Part 2 – @Astra-Werke

Part 2 of the rear spring video from Astra-Werke

Only while editing Part 1 did I notice that something was odd about my car’s rear leafspring that I had just fixed. And, yes indeed, after comparing it to photos online, I was missing some spring leaves – most likely the cause for the broken leaf in the first place. So, today, it’s all back apart again to get things sorted once and for all – plus a little extra. Enjoy!

Had a few days off work and with Simon’s help caught up with a number of tasks on the A :

New Rear Spring

Tube Rear Shock Absorbers

Repair Offside Rear Wheel Arch

Repair Seat Back Brackets

Fix Slight Steering/Front Shock Absorber Issue

In fact we did every I’d planned and in two days!

Special thanks to John Cochran as we couldn’t have done the job without the use of his spring spreader 🙂
