Upgrading the Leaf Springs on a Morris Minor Suspension Part 4/5

I want a straight edge cut along the bottom so I happen to get times—you can see. It’s similar to some of the—back to the—but we've made our own. So let’s stick this one—over the posts and then the new bolts come with new knots which—two knots behind against each other. Tighten that against each other.
So this should be—over a little tight in—stick that in there. And then once up—don’t accept the—it makes a lot of noise—interested different size of knots— okay. That’s probably what you want. It happing a lot this time of the year.
So now I can unbuckle them—. Now, let the—just put the shortcut in the end and it ends up just about the post. You wanted to use one of the—that shock absorbers splice the—from the back a little bit or we might as well—a bit closer—bolts up tight and bounce back in and then sleep the—back out and just stick it on the floor and do a bounce test, sit back and actually feel the difference the spring right and feel the shocks—shocks in there—
There one other detail I'm going to point out, the screens—that's more of the—because I think more these springs were took out. A little bit more curvy probably not one there isn’t rare enough—if that's no go then what I'm going to do is I’ll find a piece of opportunity—flip it tight so I'm just going to allow these springs to move across each other.
