Rear spring plates

Ok, it's been a few months since I have had time to work on the 930. I am planning on getting it off of my lift and onto a frame dolly so I can get to work on the cage. I am planning on going with a full coil over set up (yes I will be bracing the body). I need to pull the complete rear suspension to get the chassis on my rolling dolly. Is there anything that I need to watch for while taking it apart. I have the Bently manual and it looks fairly straight forward.

Thanks in advance for any input.

As far as i remember I had a HYD jack under my spring plates when I dissassembled my Carrera 3.0. I then slowly lowered it and released the tension on the T-bars.

I remember it as being pretty simple.

Was wondering when we would hear from you again.

My TB's were stuck to the spring plates big time.
Heat and a three jaw puller did the trick.

I got side tracked with some projects at the house and with riding. I lite the fire under my ass and drove to see Jimtweet last weekend to get my bumpers, so I am back to working on the car. Think I may hold off until this mini heat wave passes though.
