sailor Only removed shocks on mine, and yes the 36" bar to get old ones out without a compressor.

One bar to lower the suspension & another to lever out the spring.

The other issue is Getting the dumb thing out from that small space with the compressor installed. I got the one out with the use of my 36" pry-bar.

I also need to get the torch out and heat up the bottom arm bolt. It is been Michigan welded in-place. This sucker is Fighting me and I hate it.

nboyles85737 Iirc our cars have the same rear sub frame. I'm pretty sure my build thread has info you may find useful.

cannaert Got the Front lowering spring installed. Tried to get the rears done, Found out the rear coils are broken off at the around a 1 1/4 coils up. Also have no way to compress the new coils because the tool I have has no Spacers.

3rd in the process of all that I did this...


I will soon start a build thread for the stereo install.
Oh, I love KREG...I bought their professional wood screw jig kit and made a wicked harvest table that shows no fastensers.

FreeFocus Crack in the SVT bumper is almost fixed. maybe a couple more layers on the outside to fill completely. Its between the lower grill and lip, not a whole lot of room to work with. But its progress. Going to sand down with 800 grit and off to the painters for a toreador red metallic color swap. Woohoo.
