Mine don't look like that. The two springs have a double eyelet, 0---0 , between them at the upper end and the springs help them to fold up to the frame. Maybe I missed something.

I've used this method as well, using a crowbar. I'm a pretty good sized guy though, and comfortable doing this kind of work. Not sure I would recommend the process if I weren't?

My MH is a 1994 model.

I just got the springs and they were drop shipped directly from HWH. I still like dealing with Lichtsinn Motors they know exactly what I need .

Another happy customer of irv2 forums. The clothes pin shims worked great. It took 22 per spring, or 11 clothes pins/ea. Luckily my wife had some stashed from a 'baby shower', so the cost was $0 for installation...

Thank you all.

Thanks all.
I didn't on ours. Just retracted the rams and levered the pad back on.

I drove east on I-80 to exit 267 and went south to HWH. Springs were changed while we ate breakfast. Also had other work done with the replacement of some nylon? bushings in the slides, a leak fixed and a new hose. All came to about $250 and had a free? place to park with elec. Highly recommended if your in the area.
