Hey everyone,

Well I got my 600 lb springs in to replace the 700's on my front 2.5s. I went to replace them today and have no idea how to do so. Anyone have any experience with this at all? Im wondering if you have to deplete them and take the shock apart?

And how much orange rust is normal for the Radflo coilovers in under a years time? Mine are pretty bad, all the threads are covered. Is there a way I should treat them to prevent this in the future?

Just as a future reference for anyone searching, here is how the springs are removed from the 2.5 Radflo coilovers (I dont know if 2.0's are similar).

**I am not responsible for any damages incurred from the following guidance, it is just a guide.**

1. Compress the spring (use a wall mount compressor as it is much safer)
2. Once compressed enough, push the lower perch towards the top of the shock, exposing a snap ring.
3. Remove snap ring and push lower perch down off of the assembly.
4. Slide shock body up out of the spring.
5. Release tension on spring compressor if required.
