anyone wanna help with a spring install?

Anyone near my area want to help with an Eibach Pro install sometime? I also have a set of Pro3i C/C plates to put in too.
I am willing to drive a ways if needed and can probably offer a lunch-cash- or some beer.

HAHA, I don't remember the CC plates on the other post. I don't feel like drilling holes.

Can't make the trip from FL but I can help with the directions.
Try this link:

Recommendations:
2 people
torque wrench
breaker bar
2 sets of stands
1 decent jack
Impact wrench if available. You could do it w/o but the upper strut nut is a PIA without one.


Take your time and do it right, torque all of your bolts properly.

EDIT PS. Unless you're doing coil-overs you do not have to do the drilling for the 4th hole. It is optional.
