    Hey Everyone,

    I just got a set of 3" Pro Comp lift coils. Bought em used and I know they aren't the best. The are better than my spacer lift though. I was just wondering if there is anyone in the area who has a press that can remove them from the struts they are on. One of the PC strut lower bushings is messed up. Called procomp and they told me the coils woll fit my stock TRD billies(I'm not really interested in putting any more money into the coils). Problem I have is that I don't have, nor can I find a press strong enough too compress the PC coils. Talked to a couple of shops. Lowest price I got for the job was $60 swap from PCs to Billies if I pull off my stock coil overs. Any help would be appreciated. I'm looking to do the swap sometime on Memorial Day weekend.

    Don't put the pro comp coils on your stock shocks. They aren't designed to be paired with such a high spring rated coils and will probably run in to problems.
