Dennis, did you use the notched 2 screwdrivers to install the spring - see picture attached. They make the job much easier.

I just finished putting the rebuilt rear backing plates on. I had to take the radius rods off to get them on. But this was easier than taking off the arms and putting the emergency brake spring on by laying under the car.

I agree that's the way I'm doing it also but my body is off the frame .
