Its a pretty easy DIY if you're handy with a wrench. When you coming back?

His name is Gerard, don't know if its with a J or G though.. They do AAA discount, and sometimes have coupons on their website. I think Goodyear does AAA too?
Thanks, Nate! Do Goodyear or Lex Brodie's give the printout sheet?

Fire stone has life time alignment even with aftermarket UCLA

depends how it looks. Fixing wires is easy, if you broke the housing, that might be hard.

Any alignment shop should give you the printout with your receipt. If they don't, just ask for it

But yes, both Lex Brodies and Goodyear gave me alignment sheets every time.

The reviews say that it isn't a bad rig for $50 be something to start out with. Here on the island it shouldn't be that bad.

Thanks! I'll read over the practice exam. But so far, I was way more comfortable going to the firearms safety classes

Be back in a few months. I've changed springs and added air bags before...never changed shocks. Could I do the Billy install without a garage lift and use just a jack and jackstands?

Yep. Biggest headache is compressing the springs.

I did my rear billies with jackstands under the frame and a floor jack under the rear axle.

For the front coilovers, pull the struts and take them into the auto hobby shop at MCBH KBay. You can use their coil compressor machine for around $4-5 and it takes about 5 minutes (very easy). Not sure if Hickam's auto hobby shop has the same machine but I'd guess they do.

If you don't have a 2nd car, just do the install at one of the hobby shops using their lift.
