This IS how this is supposed to be set up correct? Because she just doesn't want to compress, and I'm starting to bend the spring retainer
Well it certainly looks correct, but do you have enough room to back the nut off ? You could pull off your rear tire / rim and compress the spring with some body weight. Biggest question why are you rushing ?Just peeked at the exploded diagram, definitely seems I have it set up correctly..
My problem may be a compressor that isn't "square" for lack of a better word..

Id like to think the threaded section should be centered in the hole because How it is now isnt compressing evenly. Dammit. This is what happens when your rushing -__-
Agreed.You only need to compress the secondary spring enough to back off the nut. You also should have "broke" the torqued nut first before trying to compress the spring and then using your hand to spin the nut off.
Agreed,I had the exact same problem my first time. For removing it, the wheel trick is AWESOME and way easier.
This tool works best for assembly, in my opinion.
We had made plans with friends to have dinner a few hours prior to starting, and just when I started working they decided to move dinner up an hour giving me much less time lol. Really wanted to get it installed before dinner so my dessert could be a test ride. I get sloppy under pressure lol... Biggest question why are you rushing ?
