Yep, working on those old C3's can be a real pain sometimes, OK, a lot of times. So, you rebuilding your whole suspension?

A tip ..when you reinstall the trailing arms use stainless steel shims & put a 9/16 socket between the trailing arm & frame. This will keep it at the right height to hook everything back up. This is a pia job but well worth it.
