FINALLY!! Mission accomplished! Got done installing trd springs in my car....at 1:45am. Looks good, handles good! I love it! spent only 70 bucks on jackstands and spring compressors. But, now I understand why its soo expensive to get springs installed...this was my first spring install...actually my first major body job. =)

Eh. Should have asked us before starting the job. I have all the factory spring-related manual pages on my site.

Btw, after 2 install sessions it takes me 2 hours now to do tC springs. No lift, just jackstands, and includes drinking beer and taking cigarette breaks. I guess service manual is not that useless

Thanks Phungy...took me about 7 hours inlcuding breaks of beer and cigarettes and more breaks...lol...what took us soo long was my right front strut....I got hit there previously and got it repaired...they had tighten the bolts really tight and used a different set of bolts at the bottom of the strut....and also tryin to figure out the problem I had originally when I posted this topic(very first post)...but after we got pass that obstacle, we pretty much knew how it went, everything else went like a breeze. I'll post some pics a soon as I have time to.
