Looks like the same concept.
If you look at my pics above the springs do not seem to be under any compression when the bracket is 100% raised. Remove the bolt, pop in new spring.

I am still waiting for TH Marine's reply to my online inquiry. I will call them in a week if they have not emailed back.

It seems to me that in order for the springs to provide lift throughout their range of motion, they have to be under compression even when fully raised. Certainly less than when fully compressed, but still under some tension.

Re: Replace springs on outboard lifting bracket??

yeah one spring is loose when raised meaning its well spent...the other one has enough tension to not be able to move even when raised...

but I dont think its a massive amount of tension when fulloy extended, honestly my issue will be finding a stainless spring down here not installing it

cheers
