I'm in the process of installing the springs and I am a little confused about the bottom of the spring and it fitting into the spring seat at the very bottom.
I attached a picture of the bottom of my spring seat. The 2 red arrows I added in the picture point to the where the metal starts to rise and I assume is the spring seat. The 3rd long red arrow is the direction of the spring.
My question is, how do I line up the end of the spring to this spring seat? Does it need to be lined up perfectly? There is just no way to twist the spring into this seat once the spring is installed so I assume it just had to be within a certain range of this spring seat?
Should I just try and get it within like 1/4" range before the spring seat or something, without going past that where the metal starts to rise? Maybe get it between the spring seat and the round hole?
Thanks for any advice on how to line up this spring seat when there is no way you can twist it into it until it hits this seat.
In the picture below, the two red arrows point to where the metal starts to gradually rise or slope up, I assume I do not want to place the spring on this and place it somewhere before this?
