Guest Posted March 26, 2001 Share Posted March 26, 2001 I have a 48 Packard that I am rebuilding the front end. Where the front coil spring seats in the lower control arm there is a drain hole right at the end of the seat for the coil. The book says to position the end of the spring directly over the hole. However, when I took the springs out, the hole was completely blocked by road dirt, rust, etc. and could never be cleaned because the end of the coil spring was directly over the hole. I was thinking about installing the spring so that the end of the coil is 1/4" back from its recommended position at the end of the holder, just before the hole to allow cleaning out of the drain hole. This would equate to 1/4" difference in placement. I personally don't see any problem with doing this. Any thoughts on this. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
