I'm going to replace the drivers side spindle. Just a question. Do I have to take the coil spring out? If I don't have to that would be a great thing. I haven't done one since Nixon was president, lol. And I'm not lying. Thanks.

Jack,

 

   NO, the spring does NOT have to be removed. Just support the lower control arm from the area of the lower ball joint with a jack of some sort.  You MAY want to remove the grease  fitting on the lower ball joint so you don't accidentally break it off.
