Re: Upper control arm installation question...
Insert the spring from the bottom not the top. The spring location indicator is in the upper control arm You'll have to explore some but you'll find a hole in the upper pocket. Get the car high enough so the lower control arm will swing all the way down. Mount the spindle on the upper ball joint and put the nut on just a few threads to hold it. Stick a small screwdriver in that spring locator hole in the upper arm, rotate your coil spring until the end hits your screwdriver, and jack the lower control arm up until the lower ball joint goes into the spindle. If you start out with the lower control arm up just enough to hold in the spring it's easier to rotate the spring around to the proper location against the stop (your screwdriver).
And yes, you need to strap the car to hold it down.
