Spring Installation

The new rear springs have more arch than the stock factory parts, so it can be tricky to get them in place. We first installed the shackle end of the spring and used a large ratchet strap to stretch the spring forward into place so the main-eye mounting bolt could be installed. The ratchet strap is hooked onto the spring clip on one end and a frame hole on the other. A prybar is also helpful when wriggling the spring into its home.
