Hi Guys and gals,
I have just finished replacing my front suspension on my 69 Mustang. Everything is new including springs. Here's the problem, it is very hard to turn the suspension from side to side. There is no motor in the car and I can't compress the springs enough to install the shocks by jacking up the lower control arms, raises the whole car and besides I don't think I would like all that pressure on the shocks. When I do jack up the lower arms it is a bit easier to turn the steering but it is still very stiff. Is this normal and will it be easier once the weight of the engine is on the car? Thanks in advance, Rick Z

Ya I understand that but even if I could get the shocks in without the engine in the car wouldn't that put a lot of stress on the shock? Seems that the spring would pop the top off the shock lol.
