It's hard to tell for sure if that's a plate type or hooks type. Looks like plate type. In which case you remove bottom plate insert tool into spring, slide plate into spring from side and reattach nut, then tighten from top until compressed. If you are unsure, ask an auto parts store guy, those springs have a tremendous amount of energy when compressed and can cause real serious injuries if they aren't properly and safely compressed and released. Aren't there any instructions inside?
