Struts Disassembly PICs / Procedures 2nd GEN

Been searching but cannot find PICs and procedures on how too remove struts, compress springs to insert a 3/4 Incoil poyl-spacer for 2012 Tacoma 4X4 DBCB TRD OFFROAD. I understand 5100s are the best way to go, and understand spacers can cause issues. However I am adding a 1.5 AAL to my 2+1 for a little extra strength and need to bring the front up to stock or a little higher W/out spending much so I went with this 1.5 AAL & 3/4 Incoil Spacer from Wheelers Off Road $125. Do it myself. 5-6 yrs ago I did the same to 2001 4X4 DBCB TRD and drove for 50,000 miles no issues. I don't off road do some gravel driving and hit pot holes at times.
Looked for Chris4X4 build but pics were removed.

Anyway felt I should give more info to cut down Q & Go-Buy 5100s. Maybe in the future I can buy those.

TKS in Advance.

go to page 8 of Chris' sticky thread. They are not his pics, but someone else took them following his instructions. Chris' pics are gone.
