need instructions or advice for spring install

I have put springs or full coilovers on at least 5 cars i have owned. I don't want to pay someone to do something i know how to. I have the rear started and i for some reason can not figure out how to get the suspension to fully drop so that i can take off the original spring. the only way i can see to drop the suspension out is to take off the sway bar and even the exhaust is preventing me from removing one of the bolts. i don't want to go through all of this just to save $275 for my local shop to do it. however i really want to do it myself just like my cars in the past.

if someone has any sort of instructions that would help. i will do a search on the net as well. these are intrax 1.4 springs. these are the lowest springs i could find without paying for coilovers.

I don't have any info on how to help you with the install, but please report on what you think of the intrax springs. I am interested in buying a set. Maybe a picture too. Good luck.

Thanks for posting the link to the instructions. after reading just the rear install part i have decided there is no way i feel like doing this. i already have 4 hours into it doing it the wrong way. with these instructions (and me on my back using hand tools) i would see this install taking around 10 hours. if i am going to go through all this or pay someone to go through all of this i would rather go ahead and get coilovers.

if someone wants to buy these intrax springs still new in the box ill take ($250 plus shipping)

i guess im spending saturday with the wife now instead of my car
