Hey Guys, started installing my lift tonite, went to put in the new front springs and there about 2" too tall!! I have the axle all the way to the floor! Should I use a spring compressor? Thanks

do have the endlinks and tack bar diconnected...... if so, all i can say , is buy a kidney belt !!!! you are goingto need it. when i lifted my dodge, the carli spring i installed was tall, but i could rotate it into place by hand and watch the coils compress. not to say you wont need a compressor, but i am willing to bet, that is a stiff spring.

Axle all the way to the floor...? Solution would be buy taller jack stands. We disconnect the track bar and drag link to ensue we get as much droop as possible. Further, we install the radius arm drops first to give a bit more droop.
