If you tell me what you mean by circular springs, I can tell you where they go....

Ah.
A revelation.

Do you mean the springs that go in the dust seals for the wheel bearings?
Those aren't supposed to come out....

If they did, you MIGHT be able to get them back in.
But in all honesty, you will probably have to replace the seals....

hehe.
They hold the inner lip of the seal against the shaft.
Make sense?

inner being closer to the transaxle, correct?
so then i'd have to stretch those little bastards around the rubber?

Inner being the inside lip of the seal.
And yes, you will have to strech them around the seal.
