HWH Jack Foot Replacement

I need to replace my jack foot. I ordered part from HWH and need advise on how to get off the springs

I extended it all the way and shimmed them both about half way up both springs. Advise please

You need more shims, When retracted there will be little if any pressure. You can usually get a pretty good bite on the spring with a pair of side cutters.

You can basically pry then off with the jacks raised--then use shins to expand them for install...use a vice to hold spring and rock spring side to side, need to shim most of the length to get required length to install....I have also use pry bar and slid spring onto the top catch...need to put small jack under the foot to level foot and even up the springs to attach....
