Michael....

if the spring looks like the one in this picture, then it goes in the cylinder between the two seals and pistons. If you purchased a new wheel cylinder, I'm surprised that the spring (and presumably the pistons and seals) were disassembled.

And don't forget..... there are different sizes of wheel cylinders depending on what model you have:-

M151 and M151A1 have 3/4" cylinders front and rear.
M151A2 models have 3/4" rear cylinders but have 1" cylinders on the front.
Don't mix and match them. :)

Thanks Ken, I am surprised they did not assemble them already. When I revisit the shop next, I will see look at them better.
