Not hard, all you need is a vice and an impact gun helps.

There's a few tutorials. If you end up doing it seems me a pm, there's a few things left out of the tutorials.

If you do go the used route make sure to watch the classifieds on ttora as well, there are always coil overs popping up over there

Look at the Firestone $170 Lifetime Alignment. 2 regular alignments almost pay for it. Get your oil changed there too and have them check the alignment for free every time.

Edit: THOSE ARE NICE^^^^^






Spare tire question guys....

So I am running 33x12.5x15. Last night at the gym, my buddy and I got to talking about spares. I still have my stocker under the truck (245/70/16) He tells me I might as well leave that at home since it it obviously alot smaller and I could shred my gears if I ever used it. Now if I had to use it it would be to at least get me home.

Should I be getting a full size this weekend?? Or am I ok with this for a quick fix?

I was thinking for a spare I could get a 33x10.5

With speed and long distance you could damage your gears, and if you had a limited slip you would destroy the clutch packs.

as long as the O.D. is close or the same you'll be fine with just about anything as a spare.

I would definitely get a full size. Not only will it save your gears, it will be a helluva lot safer to drive.

I had my stock size also (225/somethingorother/16), and ended up finding a used full size (285/75/16) on Craigslist for $15. Cost me $11 to have it mounted and balanced. So, you may consider getting a used spare for much cheaper.

X2 on the craigslist route. It's a spare tire so road contact is going to be minimal. No need to drop a ton of cash into one, just get the same size and class (mt, at, etc) and you'll be fine.

I'm a fan of getting all 5 matching and rotating the spare in every tire rotation. Get use out of the spare instead of watching it dry rot away.
