    THANK YOU Sonny and Marco.
    Got my 5100's installed this weekend on all four corners. Love the ride and it definately has a more stablized feel to it. The install went pretty well once I got some things figured out. The install was on an 04 and I was able to do it without removing anything but the top 3 and the bottom bolt. I then took to a small shop and paid only $10 to have the old shocks removed from springs and then the new ones installed. Once I got back home and thirty minutes later I was taking it for a test drive. I am super excited I was able to do this myself, WOW did it save me some bucks. Once again thanks to DownSouth, Great Guys, and Great Price.

    You bet, I was really worried about doing this cuz of the post I've read and how some guys had to take off some other stuff to get the fronts off. I think those are from the 2nd gens tho. This is definately a do it yourself'r. Although I wasn't gonna try to compress the springs myself, the guy that did mine used four of the compressor clamps and an air ratchet, I thot there would've been no way I was gonna get those off.
