2?'s FC-UDP & Eibach Spring installs

I am going to try to install the rest of my parts (in signature) and these two things are the only ones that I'm worried about! I have been searching and I cant find a "how to" do a spring install. Does anyone know where I can find one? If not, do you have any helpful tips for me (Sportlines)? I am going to borrow a spring compressor, are there any other special tools I will need? I saw something about having to trim the bumpstop, is that right? Also, has anyone installed the FC UDP kit without using air tools? The instructions with the pullies are pretty good but it suggest using an impact, which I dont have nor do I have an air compressor. Any help or tips would be great
Thanks

as for the springs i know you need the spring compressor and i think you can do that with hand tools allright but as for the FC UDP... its kinda hard to budge some of those bolts that hold them to the motor without turning the whole crank.

Hey thanks for the help guys. I dont think the springs with be too hard, but from what i have read it looks like 4 hands and airtools are required for the UDP's. I guess I will have to call my buddy and see if he minds giving me a hand and letting me use his impact. I dont think he will mind as long as he has the time. He ownes his own landscaping business, so he works alot of hours .......... but i bet he will say yes, especially if I bring beer
