    Hey guys I was wondering I'm going to get the toytec ultimate lift so coilovers.....is it easy to install them yourself or should I have someone else put them on. Has anyone put them on and everything was okay after that.

    Me and a buddy put my Icons on our selves. Easy stuff, just need the tools and COIL COMPRESSOR! Run by a Schucks or Kragan. They will let you barrow a coil compressor. You put a deposit down, but then get it all back when you return it. Best of luck!!!:D

    Okay so it should be easy right I can get all the tools and jack stands I think I saw a link on the suspension part that chris 4x4 put up on how to take off the coils..........isn't it just to unbolt 3 bolts up top and remove the whole coil out and just put the new ones on the same way........and how much do I torque them too
