Hi man sorry for the delay in respoding.

1) I disconnected my rear anti-sway bar from my swingarms. Then used my floor jack to raise the swingarm to compress the spring. While compressed, i snaked in some cargo straps, wrapping the coils several times.

2) I was aware of the large tensile strength of a typical cargo strap, easily 2000lbs plus. So i over compensated by wrapping the straps more than six times on two opposite sides of the compressed coil.

3) The part number I used, is the heavier duty version. Helps with towing and homedepot runs.
