The repair itself was not complicated: it was just taking off the old springs and putting on the new ones. Where it became difficult was, rather than having the appliance on a platform, I was doing it from the ground. This made it a bit hard to get some leverage to stretch the new springs into place, especially in the back. I would recommend that you have a second person there to push the tank toward the spring you are replacing. This helps reduce the distance you need to stretch the spring. If you ARE in a position to get it up on a platform, that would probably be best and would make the job much easier.
