Issues when re-installing OEM springs

Hi guys Ė has anyone had any issues when re-installing OEM springs after removing lowered springs? Iím having real trouble ensuring the spring is seated correctly and then lining up the shock to the top mount hole. I can either line up the shock but the spring wonít seat correctly or I can have the spring in the correct place but then becomes impossible to move the shock enough to line up with the hole!

I should add Iím using the process of not fully removing the shock, instead unbolting the shock from the top mount and using a jack on the lower arm to compress the spring. Iím not sure if this is the issue, itís the same process I used to fit the lowered springs and worked a charm but I suspect itís not as simple with the larger OEM springs.

Anyway, has anyone had any similar issues? Iím going to borrow some spring compressors and fit them with the shocks fully removed. Curious if Iím the only one to have this issue?

Any other tips appreciated!

Are you talking about the rear? If its the front, you wont need compressors to refit spring as it isn't under any compression. I assume this is an F80/82 as your signature states E92 330d
