I have tools, lots of tools and very comfortable with the suspension parts. Just give a date and I'll see if I can help out. Even willing to just let you use my garage.

Just installed TC UCA and ICON extended travel coils this weekend. Started about 11, finished about 3 with minimal breaks. The driver side plus grokking the instructions so I didn't bugger anything up took the longest. Otherwise it's easy and relatively quick. If I had had help it would have gone faster for sure.

I'd be happy to help. Trying to wrap my head around how it's done. I'll be doing something similar to mine soon. I got beer and labor ;p

It's not my first install so I was just making sure that everything was in order as each piece can have slightly different requirements. Better safe than sorry. I've got a bro who wants to come and help out as well so this will be rather quick. Meet up at my place this saturday then!

I'm in Lavon so it's a drive but worth it for free labor eh? Everyone let me know who is in then. Lets get this done (finally).

checkin with the boss....so do I need the spring compression tool? Now that shits moving all the questions are coming up.

Differential drop...I don't have anything for this, need it? My goal is 2.5" all way around with .75" on the 5100s(already set there) and then Eibach coils. I didn't buy a kit so I dont have anything other than those exact parts.

I'm going to call on new UCA bolts(haven't looked for those yet)

If your struts aren't assembled (the spring isn't on the shock already) then the answer is yes.

I have a diff drop kit from my '10 if you want, there are varying opinions about diff drops across the forums so I'll refrain. But I have one if that's what you decide.

The UCA bolts are more of a precaution because it's easier to cut them off than it is to take them out the first time, though the driver side (to me) is easier to take out through the front. If you don't get them it's ok, it's just more work.

bolts ordered, be here by Friday. So I guess all I need now is the spring compressor....any local guys have one? I imagine those aren't cheap to rent.

spring compressor can be rented from autozone. You put a deposit down and they refund you the deposit after you return it.
