Remove the spindle and trailing arm assemblies: Remove the four halfshaft bolts from the spindle assembly. Loosen the brake line from the caliper and unbolt the caliper from the spindle assembly. Release the parking-brake cable assembly from the top of the spindle. Go to the forward lower area of the fenderwell and remove the cotter pin from the trailing arm nut. Remove the nut and remove the bolt using care to catch the spacers that are removed from both sides of the trailing arm. Set these aside for reinstallation in the exact same positions, as this is not a setting that will be corrected by the professional alignment, but rather a factory specification for proper alignment of the trailing arm. The trailing-arm assembly will then slide free of the frame channel. Due to the rotor and spindle assembly, this unit will be rather heavy.
