    Guys,
    Does anyone have a garage in the Tucson area (or maybe Mesa/Gilbert/Chandler area if need be) they are willing to let me use to work on my truck off and on while I am down in Tucson over the next few months. I have my Total Chaos UCA's and FOX 2.5" coil overs on the way to Tucson now. I am more than willing to help you wrench on your truck (or car or motorcycle) for use of your space. Future mods I plan on doing are Y-pipe, headers, rear suspension, bumpers, etc.... Let me know and we can work something out.

    Until my Company finishes my transfer (if they ever do) I am stuck living in extended stay hotels and they dont like it when I lay their pretty white towels out in the parking lot to do work in. Plus its hot (or wet) as hell and pretty much sucks.

    Let me know guys and we can figure it out!!! Cheers, excited to get out and wheel with you all again!!!

    U-Fix-it in Scottsdale is the fastest and they supply all of the tools. I have a garage that you can use if need be here in chandler. If you give me some advance notice I can help you. I've installed the same setup you have many times and can do it in about 2-3 hours (fox's UCAs and rear setup) I also have the tools the only thing I'm lacking is a compressor do to funds at the moment

    Sweet, I might take you up on this since you have experiance doing it. It dosent look hard but I am sure there are little quirks and tricks to get everything to go in easily.

    I could go for an "Arizona Tech Day" as well.

    I have nothing to add other than to bitch about how jealous I am of your new suspension.

    Carry on.

    Yeah there are some little things that help. normally the most pain is getting the uca off the spindle but sometimes they come out easy.

    Rear is not bad but it would be way faster at u-fix-it because its fast to remove the springs on a two post lift.

    Bumpers are easy also but the rear one takes a little trick to get it off because on how it mounts to the frame on 2nd gen tacos


    I can't do a mod day at my house again. lol I had one over a year ago and had about 20 trucks there and I live in a condo town house thing. lol I know I will get bitched at by people that live in there (Not direct neighbors but people that live across the park) if I have that many trucks there again

    I can attest that the back bumper takes a little finagling and preferably 2-3 people to remove and replace. The heavier they are the more of a turd they become to get back on, too. If you do anything up here in the Valley, I'm always down to lend a hand even though I typically don't know what the f*ck I'm doing, but I fake it pretty well and haven't broken anything yet.

    Maybe I will come up to use the U-FIX-IT place and you guys can come up and give me bad advice and moral support!!!


    On a side note, I will be selling my Bilstiens + Eibach springs up front and 5 leaf (TSB & Toytec AAL) + Bilstien in back. Not sure of a price yet but I will want to sell them locally first.
