ill help you change them. i just watched my meachinc do it on mycar! Im serious. lets hook up, and we will do it together! itll look SOOOO much better lowered!


punzells? what the hell you saying man?

Thanks man!... but fronts are much harder to change than back!....my biggest problem is lifting the car up! since jacking both cars up each time and opening every shock/spring [8 times] is time killing! but if you seen it and know how it is that saves time... let's do it!

we are not gonna separate the shocks from the springs bud. just straight swap. itll take about 1 hour per side if we dont run into any problems(which i dont think we will)

before you guys do this make sure you spray all the suspension bolts with WD40 the night before. When i was doing my suspension the biggest problem I ran into was seized up bolts. Also make sure you have a blow torch handy to heat up the bolts if there seized. It toke me about 1 hour just to get one bolt out. I had to heat it up till it was red then use an impact gun to get that sucker out.

if you haven't changed your suspension in a few years expect the bolts to be seized
