Ok got my hotchkis and are installing now, took the old springs out...Have the whole back end of car jacked up with jackstands on both sides...However the hotchkis springs almost seem too small??? There is like an inch of play, how do I install them? Am I going to need some friends to hold the springs in and drop the car slowly? It just doesnt seem right...

Put them in and put the jack under the pumpkin and then jack it up till they seat. If shocks are off reinstall bottom bolt should be good to go.

Steve use some zip ties to hold the rear springs in place on the he axle. once you lower it down the springs well pop in place. good luck
