New springs

Ive got my new valve springs in from the dealer. Ive never done anything with springs, but willing to give it a shot. Just wondering if anybody had some good instructions, tips, or pointers for me. Thanks guys.

Valve springs are replaced when you do a head job on the Jeep. That takes some pretty specialized tools. Why are you replacing your valve springs? Are you doing a rebuild on the engine?

Mr. Bransford suggested i replaced them because my engine kept missing out. He said that early tj's have bad springs due to a weak batch. He had done the same things to his tj. I just need some directions on how to do it myself? But if its too difficult a job i can have someone do it.

Sounds like you should probably pay to have this done. You need more than just the springs. You will need to replace a bunch of gaskets too when you re-assemble the top end.
