Now that mark has left, i can start on my car.

I know we went over this before, but i can't find it. I took the LCAs out of my car, i'm going to install new Ball joints. Where do i find out about indexing the coils for install?

Thanks

I put an awl or pin in the second hole and spin the spring 'til it stops leaving the fist hole covered and the second open.
