You will neen a long 6mm allen key or a 6mm allen socket with extension bar. The TPC leg is an alloy
rod the spring leg is a plastic rod. The shafts are exposed at the bottom so you can drill them out
and remove them is you break the shaft off at the thread. You need to check the bushes to ensure
they are at correct height and the end cap seal in the TPC leg is still sealing correctly. Do not
remove the shaft from the end cap seal as you need a bullet like tool to put the seal back on the
shaft without tearing the seal rubber. Need more details write me direct.
