Default 1988 Mustang UPR Rear Coil Over Kit

Hello everyone.
I recently brought the UPR rear Coilover kit for my 1988 GT and was wondering has anyone completed the install. Why? I need to know are the springs (I have the .5 inch lowering springs) still retained when you convert to coilover. The type I have is below.

Here is the pick.

I'm guessing you've figured this out by now... But to answer your question, (I think I understood it correctly) no, the factory style spring is removed when installing coil overs...
