hq holden one tonner front control arms assembly

Trying to assemble the front end on our tonner , its a bare chassis with rear end on
wanting to put front suspension on so l can roll it around with wheels on

problem is have rebushed front end ,have the control, arms connected

now because l have no weight at front how do l go about putting in springs and raising up lower control arm to connect front spindle

l do have spring depressors ,one set that go inside the spring ,
bit hesitant to depress the spring that much to bring up control arm

thanks greg

In the past instead of using spring compressors ( ugly piece of gear ) I have overcome this issue by inserting spring between upper and lower control arms and passing threaded rod thru assembly instead of shocker ( need big washers ) and cranking up until top/bottom ball joints can be connected to stub axles , this will work fine.
