Installation

‰

1. INSERT COIL SPRING RETAINER



Locate the 5/8” hole in the center of the lower

spring mount on the rear axle.



Place Coil Spring Retainer (A) inside the spring by

sliding it between the coils. Make sure flat side of

Coil Spring Retainer faces down.



Position Coil Spring Retainer (A) directly on the

lower spring mount as illustrated.

‰

2. SECURE SPRING RETAINER TO LOWER

SPRING MOUNT



Insert 7/16” x 1-1/2” Flathead Socket Screw (B) into

tapered hole in center of Coil Spring Retainer (A),

and through the hole in the lower spring mount.



From beneath spring mount, slide a 7/16” Flat

Washer (C) onto threads of Flathead Socket

Screw (B) and install the 7/16” Nylock Nut (D).



Secure the Coil Spring Retainer (A) to the lower

spring mount by tightening the mounting hard-

ware. Use a 1/4” Allen Wrench to prevent the 7/16”

x 1-1/2” Flathead Socket Screw (B) from spinning,

and tighten the 7/16” Nylock Nut (D) to 35 ft-lbs.



Make sure the Coil Spring Retainer (A) is perfectly
