    ive got a friend that has a 98 4runner that has fox racing coilovers on it. he has them set at the setting they originally came with. he asked me to help crank them up so to speak and get allitle more hight from the front. my question is am i going to have to take the whole coil assembly out to do this or can i do it while on the truck? will a coil compressor be needed?
    any help appreciated..

    Jack the front of the truck up to get the weight off. Take the wheels and tires off for more room.

    x2 on what chris said and no coil spring compresser is needed.just the 2 spanner wrenches to loosen them up.after adjusting set it down and drive around the block to let them settle in.measure and measure then adjust if needed.he will need to get an alignment then as well.good luck.
