    5100 Bilsteins/Eibach Coils,2" AAL, 265/75/16 Duratracs on Procomp Steelies, Baja Bumper, 5%Tint.
    Alright so I have Bilstein 5100s for the front and I'm going to switch my stock coils over to them and set them at 2.5 with an AAL in the back. I'm going to do it pretty soon so I'm trying to figure out what tools I need to do this. Do I need 2 spring compressers or just 1? and is there any other tools I need besides basic tools? thanks

    You'll need 2 spring compressors. One for each side of the coil you are compressing.

    Air tools makes the job much easier.
