The built in clips in the front of the seat were fine to hold the springs, but I needed a way to hold the springs in the rear and connect them to the helical springs. After cutting the springs to the right length, and de-arcing them to flatten them out, I "D" ended them and attached all three springs to a piece of 8 gauge border wire with BW clips. The "D" ending keeps the spring from slipping out of the BW clips.
