    Some tire shops will do it for a "decent" price. Look for a shop that can do alignment

    Raise the front of the vehicle with the front wheels off the ground. Secure on jackstands.

    Remove front tires

    Remove 3 nuts holding top of coilover to top mount

    Remove 1 nut and bolt holding coilover to lower mount.

    Remove coilover from vehicle.

    Place spacer on top of coilover and secure with 3 nuts on studs previously used to hold coilover to vehicle.

    Reinstall coilover, with spacer installed on top, in vehicle reversing removal steps.

    It will be necessary to push down on lower control arm to fit the now longer assemble in place. You may need to remove sway bar end to gain more droop.

    It's very easy.

    1. Remove wheel
    2. Remove 4 bolts from bottom balljoint
    3. Remove bottom bolt from shock
    4. Remove top 3 nuts from top shock plate
    5. Disconnect sway bar from bottom control arm.

    After this you can pull the spindle back and out and the shock will come out.
