he didn't have spacers on in that video. All that was done is the fender flares were taken off. Again, I don't see how, all that major flexing is going to damage them to the point of the driver side tire rubbing the UCA.

Alright, I could be wrong, just looks to be sticking out much further then stock. Was he running the spacers when he was running the 35's? I know with my 3.75 bs and 35's, I hit the frame when I turn.

Has anybody had a shop compress springs for them in and/or around Opelika/Auburn?

I'm getting some pretty BS prices for it. Ranging from $150 to $95. Lynch Toyota came in the cheapest @ $95. Before I spend that I'd risk using 2 damn kitchen forks and bottle jack to compress the damn thing.

Yea it's ridiculous. I found one place that will do it for 30, but they are closed on Saturday. One place that I found is open on Sat will do it for 60. I might have to bite the bullet.

That seems to be the going rate around us bud. That's why I ordered my ome kit assembled for $100 extra. I didn't have to deal with it and they became bolt on. It $150-175 in columbus for that.

Sounds like a plan for 60. Make sure they align the springs right when they do it and everything in the right direction.

I think it's my only option. My wife works all the way over there in your neck of the woods so I couldn't take her to work and use her car. Isn't there a thread that has pictures of the correct alignment of springs around here somewhere?

I thought about that but the one I checked on to rent from Advance looked really sketchy. I can live with 60 bucks. I just hope they do it right and don't tear anything up.

Yea. The 34's were rubbing EVERYTHING! Lol.
EDIT: On another note. Anyone know where I can get a used spindle for a 2001 Tacoma that has everything I need.
