Sounds really interesting. Post up pictures - particularly
your own spring compression mechanism. Might even inspire me
to fix my x300’s sort of sagging front end.
The original message included these comments:
Auto Parts; just didnt work. I ended up using four threaded rods in
place of the spring pan bolts, locking nuts and a jack underneath
the spring pan bolt to safely release tension from the spring.
Worked like a charm and was actually fun!
