Yeah I don't have much time on weekdays either. If you have anytime this weekend I'm gonna give it a go. Let me know if your up for it.

As for tools I have a set that usually has every tool I need, plus I'm gonna get some coil compressors from advanced or one of the auto stores around here. I've never messed with the suspension before so I'm not sure if there are any other special tools needed other than a compressor?

Thanks!

Ive never heard anything about different length shocks before. Sometimes springs will be different heights, but the springs support the weight of the vehicle which can be different on one side than the other, the shocks just regulate the action of the springs...

Yeah the springs I ordered are side specific. The rear shocks were supposed to be, or so I thought. I found out the 5125s are ok being the same length on either side. The 5100 extended lengths should be side specific. Don't ask me why, because I have no idea. I think it's somewhere like .5" difference. And the longer goes on passenger side.

Glad I got it figured out, now I can stop worrying and get these baby's on my truck ASAP! I'm excited

Anyone know where I can get my Coilovers assembled? I've heard people say, "make sure you get someone who has dealt with the eibach coils and Bilsteins before". I'm sure going to a reputable shop that is familiar with any type of coilover will be fine. Any recommendations in the Austin or surrounding areas? Thanks for the help!

Anyone interested in going out to Hidden Falls tomorrow? I'm thinking of meeting up with the group already out there.

C'mon guys! It'll be fun! I'm told it dried out quick up there.

I'd like to leave mid-late morning, but am flexible for those looking to caravan.

Shoot, sorry. Just woke up. It'll take me a couple hours to be ready to go, I've got some stuff I've gotta do first.
Which way will you be going?

Minor snag. My friend, who I am picking up, is selling his car today and the buyer said they'd be here "soon."

Let me know when you're ready to leave, Zane. It's likely we might still be in town by then.
