It gets even hairier when the clamps being used aren't up to it,I got the assembly out from under the car put it on the bench undid the top nut when one of the clamps decided to slip round!!! I had to pluck up the courage to continue all my mates walked briskly away.The hardest bit was undoing the opposite clamp without that slipping.I now use good quality clamps.

When swapping my heavy duty coil springs from my previous car to my latest I took the old ones off and put back on by hand with no compressor but the heavy duty ones are a force to be reconed with.Still at least my car doesn't sag at the back like so many other 240 estates.This is now the third car I have used these same springs on,Talk about monies worth.
