Actually pulled a spring off yesterday, and have a thread started on that in regard to the axle, spring and the brakes that come on the 228BH.
Spring over axle replacement
Not hard to remove, except for the cross-threaded bolt that had to be cut off
with a hacksaw and certainly not expensive via eTrailer.
And most importantly, I sold the Hummer, and moved from UT, so no more dispersed camping off roads such as this....
(Looks worse than it is and was a short run up the ledges.)
