PostSubject: Tell me about indexing coil springs?   Tue Jul 27, 2010 8:48 pm

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.

First hole? 2nd hole? Didn't see any holes. Will look harder tonight.
