Honestly, installing the whole suspension is easy. I have done mine and I dont have any mechnical experience whatsoever. As long as you have the time and the tools then you can do it in a few hours just using the how-to u can get on this site. If you need help doing it im sure someone on here will lend a hand. Of course once u do it u will need an alignment.

http://www.ozebiz.com.au/racetech/theory/align.html click on the link to better understand what caster,camber, toe does...good material. A lot of it you don't even have to worry about it since when you get an alignment they will take care of it setting back or as close to manufacturer specs. What area do you stay in?

I am in Spring. Right off 2920. And I was just worried that there are some extra parts I will need to purchase in addition to the springs themselves.

But about the wheels, I am going to do some more calling around today and hopefully bring them in somewhere tomorrow.

just a spring compressor is all you need really, that and hand tools. no extra parts are needed unless if u really need to replace something. Rear springs are easy to, the front's can be a bit challenging. But like stated before, anyone is willing to help, even me. So don't be afraid to ask a 2nd pair of hands.

Just dropped them off at Rollos downtown. Gonna do straightening and refinish for $200. I would have had them refinish the other two but I don't have that cash and I figure I can either do that on my own or just wait until I have it.

Good ppl and none the less good work. Ive seen wheels that look totally unfixable and come out like if they rolled off the assembly line.If you need someone to mount And balance tire hit me up my friend has a tireshop and could get you the hook up. BTW my job is only an exit away from you. Should meet up sometime when you get your wheels back.
