Hi i purchased lowering springs for my 2004 hyundai accent 2dr 1.6l. After 2 days of attempting th put them on myself I failed. I removed the strut and compressed the spring but I couldn't figure out how to remove the old spring. I figured all I had to do was take off the only bolt on top of the strut but as hard as I could I couldn't loosen it. Is their a trick or a special tool or are springs just one of those things that should be left to professionals? If it should be left to the professionals how much should I look to pay I have been quoted 680 dollars but that seems high for just removing 4 tired, 16-28 bolts, 4 springs and putting it back together. If anyone has any advice or pictures or stories please share.
