Other than that, maybe disconnecting sway bar end links to help with install.
Should take about 4-6 hrs. If everything goes smooth.
I won't need a spring compressor...

If they are "true" coilovers, they should be fully assembled. Even if not assembled, no you won't need a spring compressor.
What brand did you get?

No spring compressor needed. Just basic tools and a lot of measuring to get the height in.

I had Tein basics back in 2004 on my bugeye- I can help ya. Pm me if you need help.

EDIT- I've never done rears on 08+ but it shouldn't be too hard. You will need an airgun most likely to get the OEM top hats off and put them on the basics.

Thank you! I had a blast rallying. Hit over 120mph at a few points. Mostly getting used to listening to notes again and how rallies are run.
I automatically qualified for the national shootout in Prescott later this year.
So...if anyone knows any companies that wanna help fund the venture please lemme know. I would love to make the rally and put up a fight with the national guys!
