I have removed and replaced similar shock springs and I am certain that your’s will go together the same way. I have also had them go into orbit never to return. When you do this work under a sheet of clear plastic wrap to catch the spring when it flys out. The basic process is to put one of the tabs into the notch and spin the spring around in the groove until the other tab lines up with the groove. It will be a good idea to have your movement holder in a vice so you can use both hands for the next step. Grip the leg of the spring with a pair of tweezers and pop the other tab into the groove with a wooden or bamboo stick. When the tab is in the groove, hold it in with the stick and spin the spring around with the tweezers. The important thing is don’t loose the spring.
