I would appreciate any instructions/advice/tips or tricks on how to install new hammer springs in my SKB 85TSS. I had no problem removing the old ones (sprung springs). It's installing the new I need help with. Thanks.

Been awhile since I have done mine but I use a long nose small pair of Vise Grips that I have ground the nose down on. Pad this with a small piece of leather so as not to scratch the spring. Compress and twist to unhook the bottom and a few wiggles , out they come. The LH and RH are different parts and part numbers although they look alike at a quick glance.

Aha! I was hung up trying to insert the aft end of the spring 1st due to a youtube video which did it that way and used a power tool to snap the fore part in second. However, inserting a new springs is easy with just needle nose pliers if you put the fore part in 1st and the aft end in 2nd. Wow, what a concept...try something in reverse order if the first way doesn't work! :?
