Hello everyone. What is the easiest way to install the rear spring in a 79. Installed rear trail arm bushings and strut rod bushings . Have all bet left side spring connected. Is there an easy way to pull this spring up for installing bolt and bushings.

I just used a bottle jack under the spring close to the bolt, but I have a drive on 4 post lift so I could work in the air.

I also have a lift. That's how we got the right side up. It's a little hairy. Just thought there may be a trick to it. Sometimes there is an easy way to do things.
    Thank-you Andy
