totally could. I did mine with a jack and some stands. stock springs can be compressed with with a spring compressor (i've used the crasftmen one from sears just fine).

I could help with yours if i'm not deployed

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.

Glad I could assist Phil! I figured this out when the 3/4" bolts on my Harbor Freight spring compressor started bending before the springs budged. Spring compressor machine does it so quick. Takes longer to drop the struts out of the springs than it does to compress them.

There are a few different classes, but I took the L.I.F.E. (Lessons In Firearms Education) class. I love those guys! I have been to 2 or 3 classes so far. They let me sit in when my brother/friend wanted to go. He was nervous and asked me if I would go with him..

You take the class once and you are good for life as far as the state is concerned when it comes to handguns

But the classes start to fill up about a month before..

I want the excavator. I started to build a 1/4 scale hydraulic forklift at work. I got a hydraulic pump from a convertible audi to run it, but lost interest.

Thanks, that was the "its never going to look like this again photo"
Its a new bright body. Just sold it this week actually. The cable hanging down was for the lighting, had front headlights and rear tails. I bought that for a steal so no matter. Wraith was my build though.

Sorry to bump this up boys..

My LR-UCAs are coming in later today, and my 1/2" spacer will be coming in a day or 2. I'm a teacher, so I need to get this done sometime this week, run to Scotty's for alignment and get a recon appointment. Teachers go back to work on the 30th, and recon is wide open next week.

1/2" spacer - Was thinking of doing the lower control arm disconnect rather than taking my assembly to a shop to do. If I'm gonna have to pay for a shop to do it, I may as well just order some 885s and put those in for the same installation price. Currently I have 884s on 5100s. I don't have military access, so the hobby shops are a no go.. UNLESS someone wants to help a brother out... Anyone do the LCA "swing-down" procedure?

UCAs - I'm all for doing a DIY, but I would rather a DIY with the oversight of someone who has done theirs before. I am more than willing to cut the bolt with a sawzall or angle grinder and replace the bolt for a quicker install. If no-one has time, or has too many things going on, I completely understand. If so, I'm just gonna pay scotty's to do it. (couple bills).

Let me know... Thanks... You know beers will be cold and steaks will be on the grill....
