Yeah, its close to us northerners its in sheffield. Brakes are super easy. I have the rear caliper tool needed to compress the cylinder. The fronts are semi easy as that damn retainer clip can be a pain in the butt, but the rears are cake. Your coilovers are going to be fun and I wouldn't attempt those alone and wouldn't attempt them without plenty of penatrating fluid & air tools. When is the last time you changed your front sway bar endlinks? They're easy to do and since you have the suspension apart anyayz, you might as well do it.

Thanks for the advive my friends dad replaced his focus suspension in his garage with little effort so I think I'm gonna have him give me a hand with it. I actually just changed the endlinks a week ago got rid of the clanking I was having but looked under there and decided the suspension shouldnt be to hard for us to get. I'll keep you all updated.

As for the gtg at qsl I'm good whenever

The fronts aren't too bad as long as your pinch bolt and struts don't stick to the control arm. The rears are the biggest pita. Mainly the lower control arm bolt freezes in the bushing and your left with taking the alignment bolts out of the cross member or buying a new lower control arm. Either way, you're going to need an alignment afterwards. I thought my sedan was easy enough to do, and was a huge pita. All I'm sayin is be prepared!

I'd be up for a meet. But we should definitely do like a Tuesday night cause it's $12 or $13 for all you can eat wings / salad / sides.
