Rear Springs and a special thank you

Some time ago a member, whom I can't remember, posted a homemade tool for removing rear spring pins. It consisted of a 3/8 bolt threaded on one end with 1/8 in pipe threads. Built one today, took all of 10 minutes, and succesfully remove all the pins and bushings from my rear springs. Could not have done it otherwise. So a very special thank you to the member who posted this and if he is not the inventor special thanks to him too.

real simple, stephen, you cut the head off of a 3/8 bolt, grade 5 is good, thread the cut end with a 1/8 pipe thread. Thread the pipe thread end into the grease fitting hole, slide a socket, I used a 1 1/8 impact, over the bolt now put a nut on the original 3/8 bolt threads and turn away. wish I could remember the thread the poster included a picture. Real simple and works good.
