Rear Spring Plates
Spring plates are difficult. I've put the most recent photos first, and the whole, long sequence after these. I would not recommend Sway-A-Way adjustable spring plates for a normal Baja, especially with an IRS rear. Notching the spring plates is useful, even for an otherwise stock Baja rear. With stock spring plates, only notch 1/4 inch!
In the photo on the right, the spring plate cover is on with the long screws. The spring plate is NOT on the lower stop. At this stage, I'm getting ready to use the tool (black threaded thing on the left) to raise the spring plate.
