    Do a search for fisher spring installation.

    Me and a couple of other people have posted ways on how to install them easily.

    My method was putting the moldboard face down and using a come-along (hand winch) to pull the spring into position to install the bolts.

    Took maybe 15 minutes to install 4 springs.

    What a waste of money. U can use big screwdriver and a block of wood , Its not like they have much pressure on them.Could not get much easier.
