    i need another person or 2 to help me get my truck on 4 wheels. heres the deal.........

    i need help on adjusting my 6 inch saws to put on my truck so i can make it driveable to a different members house so we can weld on shock hoops for my long travel, i also need help with a few other things.

    i pay in pizza and/or a ride in my truck that might make you shit yourself:)

    when ever the person has time. my dad was helping me but he hurt his knee and has alot of other work that he needs to do. the long travel is already installed but my kings are too long so i cant even move it really.

    and i cant adjust the saw coilovers by myself :(

    I have a 2 tun engine hoist you can barrow, it is enough to lift half your truck at a time, and I have 2 6 tun floor stands, unfortunately I don't get off work until it is dark.

    Lift the truck with the hoist and let the suspension drop. that should give you room for the shocks

    Thanks for the thought, but unfortunately the truck is on jack stands so that is not the issue. the shocks are actually too big so we have to build a shock hoop. But we have to get "temporary" shocks to get it mobile

    what he said V V the shock i need to adjust os already off the truck, and its a 6 inch shock, my truck right now needs an 8 inch shock but my 8s are 2 inches too long because i didnt get the short body 8 inch coilovers. so we need to make shock hoops, and my coilbuckets are cracked/screwed to crap anyways.
    that would be awesome if you could, do you have a spanner for 2.5 saws by chance?

    new phone, no numbers:( text me

    Just use an allen wrench for Kings. Get one that fits in the hole tight and use that. Not sure about Fox or SAW but I have adjusted spanners on dirt bikes for years and have never owned a spanner wrench. I just use a flat punch and a hammer to knock the locking one loose, once you have the locking spanner loose you just spin the spring and the spanner on the spring will spin with the spring allowing it to go up or down
