My 93 Diesel G30 needs new springs. Ive acquired the proper HD coils and Firestone 4100 Bags that go inside the coils.
I have never done coils before. The dealer service manual says that I need the front on jackstands with front end floatong, disconnect the sway bar, chain the spring to the upper arm, and put a jack with a special cradle under the lower A-arm pivot tube. Then Im supposed toremove the unolts holding the pivot and carefully lower the jack and the lower A-Arm until the spring is no longer compressed!
This sounds nuts. Im imagining the entire spring blowing out as the A-arm flails around attached to the knuckle. Has anyone done this replacement or the G20-to-30 coil spring lift who can tell me how to perform this without killing myself or breaking things?
