Gears & Axles - Moser R/R in garage no lift?
03-22-2012, 10:28 AM
i have to pull my Moser 12 bolt at home. I don't have a lift. I had a shop do the install of it but it has to come out now. I will be utilizing a floor jack and jack stands. What is the best way to reinstall it? I read one post of installing by bolting the torque arm up first, then setting the springs in and raise rear axle up with floor jack until the shocks can be bolted in. Once the rearend is to the position where the shocks can be bolted up, the springs should be completely seated.
Does this sound at all accurate?

When I swapped the S60 in mine I did it on the garage floor. And I have two lifts. Just imagine your car up in the air and trying to lower a complete rear axle to the floor or trying to lift one back up.
I just put the car on good stands and used a cheap transmission jack from Harbor Freight to do it. Was easy.

I used a motorcycle/atv jack from sears, and it was not bad at all. Get a buddy to help.
The jack works great for pulling the trans out also.
