Where can i buy some coil spring compressors?

springs are the perfect length for the shocks, when you undo the top mount the spring doesn't poing off at 300mph like normal cars, no need for them squire

(i've done over 100 of the buggers, trust me)

37min is the time to beat (all 4 corners, no ramp, no air tools) ;)

Wish i had air tools, snapped 3 allen keys and a spanner trying to undue my drivers side top mount. just make sure both wheels are jacked up, don't do a side at a time on the fronts, makes it easier.

slacken the top mounts BEFORE jacking the car up (hand tight)

when you take the front struts off push the bottom of the strut over the track rod, easiest way, otherwise you might scratch the arch

you might need to hammer the lower shock bolts out also (21mm) just do the fronts with BOTH front wheels off the ground, otherwise you be working against the ARB

Spray WD40 the night before on all the bolts you are going to attack as this will help you out big time when you come round to doing it.
