    im planning on putting in a set springs in the rear of my blazer. Just some cleaned up factory ones with the UHMW-PE linnings zero rate and new bushings. I told one of my buddies this and he said "ahhh good luck with that too me forever to get mine on" He said that he had to push the spring into place and it was real had to do because the strenght of the springs. Ive never done this before. I was under the impression they bolt righ in, no problem. He is a toyota guy so maybe thats why he said that.. But can anyone tell me if this is true or do they just bolt up no problem. And I know this is simple project but i just wanna make sure I got the details on how to do it.

    should just bolt up... bushings can be a PITA... just use the tips in my 52" spring swap tech article & you'll be ok.
