INSTRUCTIONS FOR STRAIGHT COIL SPRINGS:

  1. Install 3 leg assemblies evenly around the spring. Turn nuts finger-tight to hold in position.
  2. Install one S-bolt near the center of each leg with open end pointing away from the spring. Place the bar and wing nuts on the S-bolt, then finger-tighten the wing nuts.
  3. Tighten each leg nut a little at a time to compress spring gradually. Do not over-compress.
  4. To release the compressor, loosen each leg nut a little at a time.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR CURVED COIL SPRINGS:

  1. With the car raised and safely supported, place a jack under the lower control arm. Raising the jack will compress the spring.
  2. Install as many leg assemblies and safety S-bolts as possible (see #1 & #2 above), then finger-tighten the leg nuts.
  3. Disconnect the lower control arm bolts, then slowly lower the jack until the spring can be removed. The curved contour will remain.
  4. To install a new coil spring, use one or more legs and S-bolts to produce the necessary curve.

NOTE: Keep the threaded portion of the legs clean and well greased.
