The springs went on easy-peezy!. No messing with spring compressors (or widow makers as they are known as). I just put the lower arm on, bolted the shock to it, then slide the spring over the shock then maneuvered the whole assembly up far enough to attach the upper control arm on. It was expensive but worth it. Next task after the brakes is to replace the stock rear with a Ford 9" and Global West coil over shock system with tubular lower arms and a tubular upper bracket. Maybe by next year I can even get the engine in it!
Thanks for looking all comments welcomed.
