Looks amazing. My rear springs came out super easy after taking the lower control arm bolt out, pushed it down and the spring literally fell out. Anyway, I love the look!!

Looks great. Sorry to hear you had problems with the rears. Usually it only takes abouts 10 mins to pop out the rear springs and put in the new ones once everything is jacked up and unbolted. I've never used a spring compressor for the rears though so maybe that takes longer.

Thanks! It was a learning experience for me, hopefully if I have to do it again, it will be easier.

I have the front on 2 and the rear on 4. Front's adjust 1 -4, rears 1 - 8, it's a lot stiffer than before, I'm gonna play around with it to get a better ride quality. I think on the lowest setting it's the softest and on the highest it will be the hardest.

My rear shocks must be super thin or something, the washers and rubber things would not fit until I drilled the holes bigger
