Re: Classic Spring change help please

Go into more videos from this guy good videos you need a coil spring compressor to compress the spring off the shock assembly but be v carefull fella get a good coil spring compressor cause if that spring flies out it could seriously injuire some one with the coil spring compressed you can loosen the top nuts on shock assembly once top nuts loosened you screw the coil off the bottom of shock assembly then in an open area unscrew the coil spring compressor until their is no more tension on the spring then do the reverse for the new spring and tighten the top nuts for the shock assembly when coil in place unscrew the coil spring compresser and put it back on car secure all bolts and bobs your uncle download a manual give you more insight fella good luckDownload PDF Subaru | PDFTown.com just be carefull with the coil spring compresser do it right and take your time have heard some horror stories of people getting injuired from the spring flying
