Ok, Im replacing the two coil suspension springs in my 87 trail and I was wondering if you know of any tricks to make bolting up the suspension easier. The two back bolts is all im planning on taking out and I know that lining them back up is tough when the spings are under pressure. Ill probably be doing this solo so any ideas to making this easier would be great. I heard something about using a come along attached to one ski and somewhere under the suspension and as its tightened it sages the springs. Anyone know more on this?
Thanx,TXC

there is a simple pry tool you can make with a peice of chain bolted or welded to a 12 or 14 inch piece of pipe. weld it on about 3 inches from the top. add a hook to the other end. Make the chain just long enough so you can hook the hook over the back suspension mount and the pipe goes under the front suspension mount. If you have the right lenght you simply pry the pipe forwards which pulls the bolt holes in line. :)
