On the secondary, you can take a long bolt and a U shaped bracket
that spreads about the width of the helix with a hole in it to put the
bolt in. Then use a nut to clamp the U shaped bracket down on the
helix to compress it and take it off. Otherwise, you'll need a spring
compressor for a secondary to get it off.

On the skid, I've found that you need to put the front bolts in first.
Then play with the rear skid to get the holes lined up. Its been a while,
but if I remember correctly, playing with the track tension and a block
under the skid - you can do it yourself. Try searching for an answer
here.

loosen your springs all the way and make sure rear axel is fully loosened. it's easier to get the skid in and out with the rear arm drawn down also. use a ratchet strap to pull the front arm down, this will give you more room to work with doo front first. use ratchet strap to pull down rear and let it up slowly to line up rear holes. Done.
