Default Re: '56 T-Bird rear spring removal

Mikes 65,
I just went thru the same ordeal on my '57, though not as bad. One side was easy, the other was a b**cH. There is enough room on each side of the spring to use a cut-off wheel ( small diameter )to remove the spring by slicing the bolt, without damaging the frame supports. Once the spring is out of the way, soak the remnants of the bolt in the frame with penetrating oil for a while, and apply torque to the bolt in both directions. Also, be careful if you use an impact gun, you could expand the bolt body in the frame and jam it.
Good luck.
