True story. I thought I had a set of spring compressors but I still cant find them. Ran to Harbor Freight and picked some up for $12 I think it was. Those and an impact will get the job done real quick

As a heart attack lol.

Here they are http://www.harborfreight.com/macpher...-set-3980.html

They must have been on sale at my harbor freight when I got them.

Worked perfect :)

does everyone that's running the FRPP just have the basic ZX3B kit or is there anyone running the ZXM1 dynamic kit?

I'm planning on getting one of these in the next couple months and want to know if it's worth the extra money for the dynamic.

also how the basic kit is holding up0 for everyone long term? I put a LOT of miles on my car (ave 5k a month) and don't want something that will have to be replaced often.

Price on both kits are great, but I'm still entertaining the idea of saving for the H&R coilovers
