you have to turn the torsion one notch down. it takes awhile and a good spring compressor helps. I did my first car with a chain attached to a good floor jack. the first side takes about 4 hours the second took me 45 mins. it is DANGEROUS so make sure you know what you doing before you do it.

try some google searching and you will find alot of people who have done it and have pics.

Ben, I hope this offer still stands, when I get my baja on the road! Laughing
You're a local....did you have your cage put in your car?....or did a PO do it?

Greaser, check Hibbard's book....I think they have directions in there also.
