Yeah I would be down to lend a hand. Let's just make sure we have the right tools so everything goes smoothly. I'll bring my tools and I'll be in the black GGA thats dirty as hell.

i wouldn't advise it.

I'd be impressed if you could install the ALK in the parking lot late at night. They're not as easy as they seem. Maybe impressed isn't the right word.

And make sure you have all the tools. The stock nut and the new one are different sizes. I missed that fact and ended up spending a good part of the day running back and forth to stores to buy one wrench, then another, then a tap (which I ended up not really needing, I just needed to muscle the suspension a bit more to line things up), and as mentioned before, don't forget the breaker bar. Oh yeah and jack stands, jack, chocks, etc.

Plus, even though they did make a little bit of a difference, it wasn't enough to make it worth rushing to install them.

Yeah, I think Craig is right. I would be more than willing to help you install these, even at my house if want. I just don't think it would be a good idea to try to do this one in the dark in a parking lot.

Another thought would be to use DreamLot in Mountain View. They provide a two post lift and access to all their tools (including air tools) for only $17 an hour. I may be heading down there soon so let me know if you want some help.
