Been traveling and finally going to lower my car this week. Met with my mechanic today and he wanted me to ask you where he could get those tools? I will be trying to pick them up tomorrow.

Also (this may be stupid), when you lower the car you are actually "compacting the spring and raising the bottom nut on the spring?:confused:

Thanks for all your help.. they plan on using a spring compressor so maybe it wont take too long.

Thanks Jim

Jim, please excuse my late reply... I was away on a trip.

The tools I asked my mechanic to get for me... I'll ask tomorrow where he got them and let you know.

It is the contrary Jim... if you raise the bottom nut and compact the spring you'd be lifting your car... to lower your car you have to loosen the bottom nut.

The spring compressor will make things a lot easier... don't forget to bring us pictures :)

Hey Jim, I want to see your car once you jack it up. Are you going to just jack up the rear end or are you going for the monster truck look? :D

I'm in. Since Jim and I live in the same area, it'll be easy for us to make the meetings but I'm afraid you'd have a little trouble :D
