Default SA- anyone want to get together to do a spring install?

Hey guys kind of new to the Subaru scene down here and getting some springs in tomorrow. Just thought some of you guys might want to schedule a day to do a spring install. We could get some brew and pizza going. If anyone here has a good garage we could do it there. I'm going up to Dallas this weekend so maybe sometime within the next couple of weeks. Just drawing up some interest and checking everyones schedule.

In San Antonio

Yeah coming from Arlington with my protege5 we used to get together almost every other weekend and do some sort of install. I know how to do a spring install, one time we got together with about 6 other guys and did 3 different car suspensions in about 45 mins. Just thought there might be some guys that were down to get together and bullsheet around and put another install under thier belt.

Hey that may not be such a bad idea. The only problem is that I'm going up to visit family so I don't know how they will feel about me spending one of the days doing an install.

That's because you are in Austin.. lots of antisocial subies there. Lately, I have only seen them through posts in TXIC.

Matt (Ranastu) may be busy Saturday (starting to build a deck) but possibly free Friday or Sunday.. will have to check with Kiff about his schedule. We have plenty of tools so, you should just need to drive over (We all live a little north of Seaworld).
