    Just unbolt the LCA's and the pan hard and let the the rear end droop and the springs come right out.

    Of course aftermarket (shorter) springs might not even require unbolting anything...

    lo in the end

    muchas gracias, I am thinking about going with stock ws6/z28 springs...?
    I have no rear support and my ride bottoms out so much so that the rh tailpipe is crushed flat via the axle rod...

    Be careful on what springs you get as you already have the same springs as ws6/z28 unless you have the 1LE package which would give you stiffer (imo better) springs already.
