    Does anyone feel like helping install some 5100s? I've already got them on the truck but I need to change them to the 2.5" setting. Thanks, Bill.

    I'm free every weekend. I did the install with my brother in-law, but we had a shop take care of the springs. Do you have spring compressors?

    Go to firestone. Thats what I did, the spring compressor is kinda scary. I paid 20$ at Firestone but the guy pocketed the 20$ what a dick I would of done it willingly. Took him a whole 5 min to do both.

    Haha shady dude! We had mine on the lift already and Kragen was next door so went and grabbed it. Not to bad if you have air tools.

    I am in the Glendale area and have a world famous or is it infamous stoneage spring compressor.
    I can offer it and or my services to compress your springs.
    You have the skills, tools and ability to do the swap I can squish the coils for you.
    When and where?

    I did the swap before I moved and I couldn't bring the air compressor, but I should have enough tools to get the job done. The big issue is that I can't work on vehicles in my apartment parking lot and my truck doesn't really fit in my garage.

    The weekend of the 29th is not good we ar having the major part of a construction sched for that weekend.
    The 6th of Oct. is better for me, but your are welcome to use the compressor if you wish on the 29th of this month.
