A note regarding safety:

When I was removing the springs on my 201, I made myself a "safety strap" by securing a chain through a coil in the spring, then around the control arm. It gave me a little peace of mind. I figure if something catastrophic were to happen, I can live without a hand or even an arm. But I've really grown accustom to my HEAD! (Although I have been accused of not using it!)

Can't be too careful.
