WARNINGS:

  • Make sure the spring compressor Safe Working Load (SWL) meets or exceeds the spring rating quoted in the Specifcations section.
  • Always follow the spring compressor manufacturer's instructions.
  • The spring is under extreme tension, care must be taken at all times. Failure to follow these instuctions may result in personal injury.

NOTE:

Dampers fitted with electromagnetic damping, when stored in one position for an extended period, can exhibit a characteristic where the electromagnetic damping fluid separates out into its constituent materials. This can give a false impression that the damper piston rod is seized. This is normal. Therefore, when fitting replacement electromagnetic damping dampers it is important that prior to installing the dampers, they are inverted and compressed against a suitable piece of wood by pushing downwards using body weight only. Carry out this procedure 15 times. This makes sure that the fluid is fully mixed and operating as normal. It is important that the threads on the piston rod are protected at all times.

WARNING:

Make sure to support the vehicle with axle stands.

Raise and support the vehicle.

Remove the spring and damper assembly.
