Spring Install

Well, ive been trying for about 2 weeks now to get my eibachs on but everytime i get a chance to something comes up. this last weekend i was throwing up everything i ate so that didnt go over so well. now, we just traded in the audi for a new explorer and i have next to no extra cash for another week and a half.

i need someone with jack stands, spring compressor (if not we can rent) and a good socket set and even some experience installing springs would help. i got the whole process down, just lacking the tools and a couple extra hands to do so.

ill buy whoever helps out lunch at chipotle, maybe we can get enough cars down and have a lil g2g. my schedule this week is ok, off at 2p wednesday and thursday, off at noon on friday.

so whoever wants to help let me know!

Denver isn't that far, actually sometime I want to come down to the states for some big G2G, I would totally drive for that. It would be nice to meet some of you other 'veterans' on here in person.

I've been down to Denver before, but a while now, it's about a 12-15 hours road trip from here. Seriously sometime I am going to have to get to a G2G in the states.....

Good Luck with the install though, honestly would be there if I could.....

Is that via I-15 in the states, or you come down from further east?
If it's I-15, give me a shout and we can caravan.

Just a thought...
Have you contacted zinkyellowfocus?
He's in Arvada, and just did a Vortech install.
Seems to me he had a couple fellow Foci "helpers" in the area.

Yeah, we were down your way in late July for the Cheyenne Rodeo, and the PPIR Busch Race.
Be a bit before we head back down again though.

BTW, what happened to your VW Bus avatar?
That was COOL!
