Last week I disassembled one of the rear springs. The C8 springs are narrower than the springs of it's bigger CMP sisters, but the brackets are the same. So. there is a spacer between the spring and bracket, on the inside. You can just spot it on the pic of the spring and shackle on the bench.

The clip-bolts were hell to remove and all of the spacers have gone, so I will have to replace those as well as one of the spacers mentioned above, and some of the bushings and pins.
I spent more time than I hoped for cleaning up the leaves with the wire brush disk on the angle grinder, and gave it a coat of primer on the sun.
