Anyone have a good experience with re-installing front springs('88 Mustang V
? Putting the V8 springs back into the 4 cyl. K-member.

It's been a long day at work and I'm struggling to put the springs back in their place.

Rented(bought) the Autozone spring compressor, but it's got a couple of drawbacks on this application. There are two ends with 2 "J" hooks on each. One end is threaded and the other allows the bolt to spin in order to compress the spring.

Main problem is clearance for the tool and the radius that the spring must be compressed on to make it "fit" back into the original spot.

Any better tools / tricks out there?
