I used hand tools (you NEED a 1/2" rachet, as my deceased 3/8 driver will attest to)
and I used a set of spring compressors I borowed from a guy at work. They are basically a 3/4" threaded rod with a single J-hook with nut on one end, and 2 J's on the other. you have to manualy turn your springs down - it took some work.
I am still lovin' the setup, but need to take few days off of work to go drive around!! haha that would be nice - but anyway, I am going to let it settle for a week or so then get an alignment. After that I will post more reviews and pictures of each wheel gap. We will see if it changes at all? (right now I think it would be good to get the Standard rears - and the Low fronts. That might yeild an overall 1/2" drop or so. With the AGX's anyway -as I think they may raise up the perches a bit in the front?????)
Tha car is MUCH more fun to drive. it even feels faster
next up...Brullen exhaust
