We replaced the original springs with new ones in Fall 1999.

Dave Ross looks at the new springs while Matt Baccitich, Greg Kamholz, and Jim Vanderbeck compare the condition of the old ones.

John Kelso hoists his end of the spring (800-900 lbs).

Jim Vanderbeck hoists the other end.

John Kelso and Jim Vanderbeck plan the next part of the move. The appliances, piping, and other obstacles are different by each driver.

Now the hard part begins.

The spring is now in position on the saddle, and the equalizer hanger in place over the end, but not yet lowered into position.
