I just did this install yesterday following this write-up and can add more as well...
1. When removing, hammering the clevis off the strut takes forever. To get around this, put some weight (by standing) on the rotor. Once the clevis is popped free of the strut, jump off because you are getting close to stretching the brake line by too much.
2.a. When installing the strut, have some one pull the clevis far enough out so that you can have the strut resting along the top of the clevis, with the tab "in" the clevis.
2.b. Have someone push (with their feet, possibly holding onto the upper control arm) the clevis and strut in towards the center of the vehicle to get them to line up parallel. Once they are parallel, a second person needs to jack the lower control arm up to push the clevis onto the strut. The only way to get the strut into the clevis is if they are parallel to each other. We were unable to get the clevis opened up far enough to install it any other way.
I did the same as above but also the following...I installed the strut fork/clevis bolt in backwards and put a washer in the space, so once I tightened it, it spread the clevis apart nicely to get the strut in. (You'll know what I mean when you do it).
For the rear, the driver's side may need the aid of spring compressors, but you have those already since you need them for the front.
I probably should have done this, but instead I unbolted the cup and had another person push down on the axle while I pryed the spring into place.
I installed the 'A' springs on the drivers side because that's what I've always seen online...But, you brought up a good point in that these lifts were designed on right hand drive vehicles! My set-up may be reversed nowFor those who installed the OME lift ,,, in which side you put the A and B rear coils.
As per my knowledge the A coil is in the driver side in the Australian cars and the passenger side in US cars.
I reinstalled the OME coils which I used in my previous Commander and I put the A coil in the passenger side .. but the vehicle is tilted to the driver side !! ,, now the height is lower in the driver side by around 1" !!
