To help the spring seat spin freely on the shock, we dabbed a little antiseize on the threads. Putting the lift near the ground, we used a floor jack to compress the new spring until the bottom of the shock lined up with the mounting holes. We then used the supplied bolts and lock nuts to secure everything in place.
