How to replace springs wk2 srt 8

Yes I know this operation will require tools that might not everybody carry in their garage , but pretty sure I have them , how hard is it to replace the springs ? I just got mine from black ops , mid lvl .

Re: How to replace springs wk2 srt 8

Just a matter of getting it up off the ground & taking everything apart. Spring compressors the ticket. If you pull the axle out then lots more space to put the parts back but you need to get the axle straight & as horizontal as possible to get it back in. Watch the boots & wrap them with heavy rags as some other posters have mentioned when they did lifts. Also be sure to disconnect the brake lines, etc. where they are clipped in. If the hub drops too much it can damage those.
