    So i looked into the 27f and that seems to be autozone specific? Picked up a 24r at oriellys that had higher specs than the 27f, i think its 730cca and 910 ca so im hoping itll be ok. 3 year warranty too still shocked that they dont last 5+ years anymore lol

    The 27f in my truck now came from an orilley's auto parts in Las Vegas. But I bought one for a customer from pep boys a few weeks ago so I don't think it's autozone specific. I do know that not all stores stock them as they aren't near as popular as the 34's are

    Any recommendations on floor jack and jack stands. Something that will work with max 3" lift.

    Harbor Freight my friend. I've got the 3 ton jack and 6 ton stands. Depending where you're jacking you might need to add a piece of 4x4 but it works just fine. I know that's what @icetreye uses as well

    This is what happens when you combine girlfriend mod with the housing mod.

    Then there is the child DLC. Free at first but has mandatory in game purchases.

    Be careful with this DLC as it can be installed multiple times.

    It probably will but I can't say for sure. I've barrowed and tried a handfull of strut compressors from shops adjacent to mine.

    Not sure of the brand but this style has worked best for me since the bottom strut holder is adjustable

    IMG_8618.jpg


    I have also used this style with some success

    IMG_8621.jpg

    This style has not worked for me. I know you can change the jaws but I haven't found one that fits the 2.5 coils

    IMG_8620.jpg


    The two that worked well both had fairly small hooks to grab the coils which will work in your favor. The one you posted looks to have the same style hooks. The only part I'm not sure of is the fixed diameter base. I've adjusted the adjustable lower clamps a few different ways depending on the shock brand and the purpose I was using the tool for. I orient the shock different if I'm just adjusting the c/o's vs if I'm swapping out the coils.

    It'll really depend on the size of the hook on the bottom. I at the minimum would want an adjustable lower hook so it could be adjusted to hold the c/o as best as possible. Their is a lot of kinetic energy when swapping springs. I saw a mechanic next door to my shop split his forehead open requiring 28 stitches from not securing a strut in a spring compressor properly. With that said I'd imagine you can make it work. But without having it in front of me to look at it's impossible to say for sure
