Re: Coil spring positioning hole on '69.
Scott's reference to a 'recess' is in the lower control arm, the 'slot' the spring sits into.
The slot has a hole in it at the very end, the lowest point for water to drain out.
The spring has two ends, a closed end and an open end. The closed end is flat, ground off flat. Set the spring on the floor on the flat/closed end, the spring would be perpendicular to the floor.
The other end of the spring, is called open end, looks as if the coil was cut. set the spring on the floor and it will lean. The flat end fits into a pocket on the subframe and as Scott suggests, there is a hole next to the upper control arm bracket on top of the rail. The end of the spring should be showing in the hole. The bottom of the spring in the lower control arm lays in the slot as given.
