Need help now with 5100 install!!!

SOLVED......THANKS TO SKULLY AND DREW! So I am trying to install a set of billies in the front and will be using the stock sport springs. I have everything pulled apart and am in the process of "trying" to re-assemble one spring/shock set up. Problem is that I cannot compress the spring enough to put it back together. Any ideas??? setting is only .85!

Do you have the spring perch on upside down? Can you take a pic?

Hmmm...I will take a look! I know these are the new billies that come with the steel perch. It is flared. Should the flare be facing up or down?

I should fit on so that it goes down over the c-clip so it cannot come out.
