Bringing in my radflos to their shop and they want me to take off the spring. How do I go about taking off the spring from the coilover?

Thanks

compress the spring with external spring compressor, and under the spring perch is a wire retaining ring. Take it off and the perch and spring slides off

I'm not 100% sure since I don't own a set of Radflos, but usually you unscrew the perch to remove all the preload force in the spring. Next pull the top cup down and you should see a snap ring and spacer. Remove the snap ring and then the spacer should slide out of the way and finally the top cup and Spring should slide over the top.

pain in the butt!! you need to compress the springs enough to slide the top coil plate out then you can remove the entire shock

easiest way to do it is take them to an automotive place and have them take the shocks out , alot safer that way
