Both times with out an offset wrench and the 1st time the car was even setting on the ground. Passenger side is not hard if you remove the cover on the gas filler neck and unbolt the vapor can so you can move it a little.

Yeah, I did it with the car on ramps without removing anything. It's probably 1 million times easier if you just pop the wheel off after further inspection.

Hmm, I wonder if I can install some stuff too lol (Ladder brace maybe coils). Where in Laurel do you live? We'll need somewhere to do an alignment after. I figure DPS, IAG, and Andrewtech is too far and too booked. The Firestone in Maplelawn is pretty legit.

I'm near Savage Mill off Gorman RD. Only problem with numerous installs is my driveway is too steep so all work that requires a jack / jack stands etc. must be done in the garage. Just depends on how fast the 1st 2 jobs go.

I was going to offer to buy lunch/brews since this is going to save me a bunch of hassle and money of taking the car to a shop

...but I suppose I could bring something to eat if all the cars are going to be suspensionless or on stands unable to take us to eat haha

I'm driving home (almost an hour) without an alignment so I wouldn't worry about having one immediately after Xero

What time are you thinking about starting this MD04WRX?

Yes. I received the correct end links today so all parts are in-hand.

starting anytime after 11AM works for me, but I guess it's up to the homeowner to decide

I don't have a spring compressor so someone needs to bring that. I have an electric impact but it's only about 200 ft lbs so if you have a stronger one bring it.

I have jack stands, jack, breaker bar, and lots of PB blaster. Plus all the normal stuff, impact sockets, etc. I've done everything from coilovers, turbo, to a SR20 swap with my tools so we should be ok.

Not a big beer drinker while working on cars (Coke or water is better for an old fart like me), but some Corona after would work.
