Anyone in Austin up for a project?

Ok it's not much of a project, but sadly I'm lacking a bit in the tools department. I gave my old tools to my father to help with his trucking business... not like I had that much, but it's more than I have now.

I'm buying some tein springs for my 05 focus soon, and I kind of need a spring compressor for the fronts.

anyone willing to help me out?

Sounds like fun...

I might have most of the tools needed, minus torque and spring compressor...

When I get some time off, I can help- I have basic tools (socket set, jack, etc.)

I've got a few tools as well, and this would be a good excuse for Me to finally break down and buy a torque wrench... I just work kinda strange hours, but We shall see, no?
