107 rear spring spacer replacement

Once the shock is unhooked, does the spring have to be compressed, or can I pull the lower arm down enough to r&r the spring spacer?

There is a W107 forum farther down, but yes, the spring must be removed. Look at the front of the trailing arm and you will see a hook like stop. Removal requires a special spring compressor.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
