There are two kinds of people in the world: those who have used a hacksaw, and those who haven't used one yet.

Hmm, for the spring install, make sure you have sufficient tools. I recommend a rubber mallet, a torque wrench and a breaker bar. I did the Tien coilover install on my car, but installling full coilovers are easier than installing springs. I'd help you out if you need to though. However, I do not have the above mentioned tools so we'll need to get them or find someone who has it.

I have a metal hammer... if we can't find a mallet, we'll use some of my leather gloves to cover the hammer to make it work.

Springs are easy, you should have them done in two hours tops for all four, especially if you get somebody that knows what they are doing to help you. If it's next weekend I might be able to lend a hand also. Air tools are helpful, I have a compressor and impact tools which helped so no problem with crazy torqued bolts. Are you doing struts also? Your stock struts will be toast in no problem by the way.

Those STi pinks are made for SPT so they have the subaru warranty covering them. Which means my bumper to bumper covers it all. If my struts go to **** they will get replaced. Even though SPT specifically made these for the stock struts.

They do not cover incorrect installs like that though. We've just got to make sure we do it right.

Well I just talked to my wife and she's on call tonight so I can't help out. If she gets called out she has to leave right away and wouldn't have anybody to watch the kid so looks like I'm staying at home.
