    I did not have the proper tools to compress the springs. Last time I tried it the coil compressors exploded and busted my garage windows. I paid it cuz the work was already done.

    Didn't they just have to assemble them the first time? This time they had to break them down, put on the spacers and reassemble then mount back on your truck.

    Should have got one from harbor freight there spring compressor is $30. I'm pretty positive I could throw mine off a roof loaded with a whole assembly and it would not let it go. It clamps it from 4 sides and has a locking pin.

    Isn't the toytec top plate spacer supposed to go on top of the shock, you don't need to take your spring and shocks apart. I have 1/2 toytec top plate and u just slapped them on my top of the shocks and reinstalled the shock back in.
