I agree with Techinspector. The proper way is to remove your springs and install the new ones. I remember seeing people use an aluminum plug looking thing (pepboys sold them for under $10) You would put the edge of the plug on the spring and with a 1/2 inch rachet and extension, you would turn the plug and it would lock in between the springs, extending the springs and raising your vehicle. Only problem with that is some people ended up loosing one hitting a bump and the car would be leaning until you replaced the one that fell out. Stick with the new coil springs!
