On '70s it's a common hack to loosen the stock springs 3/4 a revolution by allowing the bent end to come off the OEM retaining peg and come to rest on the screw that protrudes into it's path. The bent end of the spring will rest there nicely there and this allows just enough tension to come off the spring to keep the doors from creeping up over time when the engine is off.
