Coil install question

I think this is common practice, but hopefully others will chime in.

if the spring is removed on the side you are jacking off of, yes it's common practice. In fact, it's common practice to cycle the axle to full bump, full droop and full flex on both sides to check suspension clearances while the springs are completely removed.

here's how it's done:
