    Once you figure it out once though it gets easier like with all things. I've pulled mine and rebuilt it for like ten bucks.

    An unpainted kit would also be a good idea, or maybe not, just paint over and have 2 coats of paint.

    So they don't offer the kit in black and will be in the near future she said but it's only been like a month or two she said they have offered them and as for a group buy she said that they don't offer anything like this at all which is a bummer. So I think I might just buy the red ones then paint them black for the extra protection Instead of buying the plain ones... now on to buying tires...to go with 265 or 285 is now the question to look into..any opinion on either?

    Not a lot of opinions on that topic on this forum I'm afraid.

    Damn that sucks! Go 285s if you plan to wheel it. I got 265s and regret it

    Only got 265s because I couldn't afford 285s at the time and needed new tires

    It is a bitch, take your time and go thru the side.

    Also, save yourself a Metric sh!t ton of money and just rebuild it. The bushings and spring are super easy to replace and cost ~$9.
