I searched the forum and see some good info on spindles, but still have a question (hope it's not too much of a stupid question).
Can I safely change my damaged spindle without taking the coil spring out? I ask because my handy "Mustang Restoration Handbook" goes all into removing the spring first, but I don't know if that's just beacuase they're explaining a full tear down.
It's a 67 coupe, pwr steering, manual drum brakes. Spindle and hub were worn down because the kid I bought it from left out the spacer when he replaced the wheel bearings.
