racetech spring installation question...guidance...
Hello everyone. I picked up my. 95 front springs and im excited to get them installed...but some things that came into my brain.
1. Why do you need to cut the spacer pipe that comes with them? I mean, would it be detrimental to use the preload ... err... ride height spacers that come in the forks? If so, pipe cutter? Ive never worked on front suspension. Go easy on me if possible.
2. I must admit that im nervous on messing with something that supports my entire life at 80mph, anyone within 200 or so miles (minneapolis is a nice ride for me) willing to help me out when the weather warms up? Id spot you a case of your favorite beer, or something. Im a visual learner, never worked well from a book...if i cant disassemble it visually im bound to mess up. And with all the tips i read about backing preload all the way, needles(i think) etc, etc, im just not comfortable enough. Youtube could help, but i need model specific instructions, not generic guidelines.
You might say take it to the shop and i might, but they are quoting a little much...granted im also putting on a new pr3 this spring as well but thought I'd see if anyone would be willing to walk a newbie through it.
I may not have a lot to say but it doesn't mean I don't listen.
