Spring and strut install on 86 Trans AM or any thirdgen Firebird or Camaro
Watch in HD! Ive gotten into many "conversations" with people when it comes to installing springs. Some guys like spring compressors and SOMEHOW get them to work. Some try to push the spring and a-arm into place at the same time. And then a couple other variations of each. This is how I do it. In my experienced opinion its safe. It always works. Its quick and easy. As long as you use your head, and some common sense, this will work and be safe for you. Its just like my video about installing my motor through the bottom of the car with a hoist. You just have to be careful and use your head. Im by no means saying you shouldnt try your way. Except for the one where you try to compress the spring and push the a-arm into position at the same time. That one makes NO sense to me. haha.
