There isn't so much immediate harm, but if you can have your wife help you, even to just hold one of the springs at a certain tension, it's not terribly difficult. Took a couple hours to measure, cut, and set up the springs when I did it. Also, older springs don't have safety wires running through them -- when the spring near my car broke it almost shattered one of my windows. New ones all have one, from what I've seen.

Goggles are always good.
I'm wonder how he did this, because this sounds really hard to have happen..

You sound like a huge tool in this post.
