Hi I am new to this forum but have been in the VW/baja community for several years. I have been working on my bug and rebuilt the front axle but cannot seem to get the leaf-springs in to the axle tubes. Is there a trick to getting the leafs in or is it just a matter of messing with them for several more hours... lol :P. Thank you for any responses!

Take a rubber band an wrap it around the end. It will hold the spring pack together and then just slide down it when you shove it through. I also take a die grinder with a sanding pad and put a small chamfer on the end of the spring pack to make it easier to start. You can just leave the rubber band in the beam, it wont interfere with anything.
